Summer Reading with OverDrive!
While summer presents an opportunity to relax and enjoy the sunshine, we want students to continue to find ways to learn while away from the classroom. What better way to engage your student’s mind than through reading and listening to books? The OverDrive digital library collection provides free 24/7 access to eBooks and audiobooks all summer long!
