With the opportunity for students to bring their own device to school to use during independent reading time, I thought it might be beneficial to parents to have some FREE resources to download e-books. Below are a list of my favorite places to find free e-books.
Cuyahoga County Public Library
This page is linked to the Cuyahoga County Public Library and is available to all citizens of Cuyahoga County with a library card. This site is great because as long as you have a library card from a participating library you can borrow books! No need to create an account, just select the library where your card is from, type in your library card number, and you are ready to borrow up to 10 books! This site is organized into 6 different categories: fiction, non-fiction, audiobook fiction, audiobook non-fiction, music genres, and video genres. The best part is the books automatically return to the site so you never have to worry about late fees!
This page is available to Brooklyn Middle School & High School students via our library/media website. After you log-on with our username & password you can begin to access the libraries collection of e-books.
Links to websites outside of the District or its server are included if they add information that may aid the user, and are included only as a public service. Every effort is made to verify that the links are educational in nature, and related to the District's educational mission, but the Internet is dynamic and volatile, and web pages can change suddenly and rapidly. It is not unusual to find information or images that are objectionable. Inclusion of a link does not constitute endorsement by the District of that site, or of any third-party sites to which it may be linked. The user is advised that once you leave the District's websites, even through links included on these pages, you may encounter inappropriate, illegal or inaccurate material. The District is not responsible for the content beyond its websites and District server(s), or for any fees associated with the use of an outside site. Proceed at your own risk.
