Nonfiction eBooks Via Follett Shelf

Hopefully you already know about OverDrive and are accessing it to read awesome fiction books like Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Harry Potter, Big Nate, Magyk, Heidi Heckelbeck and more. Well now it’s time to check out Follett Shelf for nonfiction ebooks. Just click on the previous link to go directly there or go to Destiny and click on Follett Shelf on the left side.

Next, you’ll see a screen of book covers. They look fantastic, don’t they?? In order to read the ebooks, you’ll need to login. Click on “login” in the top right hand corner. The student login is their student number. For students in grade 3 the password is 12345. Students in grades 4, 5 and 6 should use the password they use to login to the school network everyday (to get past the firewall).

Once you’re logged in, you can start exploring! Most Lower School books have an infinity symbol. That means that an unlimited number of users can read the same book simultaneously – the book is always available!

Some ebooks are interactive and multimedia, such as the book below about water pollution. There is a video on page 4.

Some are electronic versions of their print counterpart, such as the book below about fossil fuels.

Most ebooks have an audio version so students can have the book read to them.

Right now we have a good collection of ebooks to support the G3 and G4 Sharing the Planet UOIs. I am adding more ebooks to support UOIs as I find them. We also have some fun ebooks, such as cookbooks and craft books. So check them out today! If you need help, just e-mail me!
