These are eBooks that I buy from Follett (one of our district's main library book vendors) on a book-by-book basis. So far, I have purchased almost 500 eBooks. These books cover a wide range of curricular topics and leisure reading interests. We have English and Spanish eBooks in our collection.
There are 2 ways to access a Follett ebook:
1. You can search for all library books (physical and electronic) in the Library Catalog. When you find an eBook, just click the URL link.
2. You can search for just Fisher Follett eBooks in FollettShelf.
Once you are to the point where you are ready to read the Follett eBook, you will need to login. For login information, please contact me at the library.
If you need more help with this, please contact the library.
NISD Digital Library (OverDrive) is a service purchased for the entire district to allow users to check-out ebooks, audio books, music, videos, and other digital material, and use it on their Nooks, Kindles, iPhones, iPads, etc. This is the same system used by the San Antonio Public Library. Students will need to use their student number/lunch number/library number WITH THE S IN FRONT to check-out a book from the NISD Digital Library. Fisher students will only have access to elementary level content.
Please see below for handouts about using OverDrive with different devices.
OverDrive has an excellent Help/FAQ section (as well as a list of compatible devices). I encourage you to use this first if you need help. I am happy to help if I can, but the devices I have experience with are my iPad and iPhone.
Tumblebooks is a collection of online, animated books. It is geared toward younger readers, but there is content on the site appropriate all the way to 5th grade.
Tumblebooks also includes:
