A Note from the Librarian

During November your student learned about two programs, Tumblebooks and Overdrive, that provided online books in English and Spanish to students for free.

Both programs can be logged on to at home through the Boyd Library Website “Ebook Resources”.

Both Tumblebooks and Overdrive have apps that can be downloaded for free on to any phone or tablet. The Tumblebooks app is under the same name while the Overdrive app is named Sora by Overdrive.
