At the present time, we have 105 ebooks available through Follett! Books that have a GREEN ribbon are multiuser- meaning unlimited number of students can read the book at the same time.


FolletShelf Features:

Follett ebooks also give you the option to have the book read aloud. Students can also take notes using the "Add a Note" feature - it's like putting a sticky note on the page. Students can also highlight words or passages, which are saved to their notes. All of their notes are SAVED into their "Notebook" and can be printed out. Notes remain in their account until they delete them!
