EMSB INTRODUCES FREE eBOOKS SERVICE TO STUDENTS AND STAFF AT HIGH SCHOOLS

MONTREAL, MAY 8, 2015- The  English Montreal School Board Pedagogical Services Department has launched a new service called OverDrive, offering free eBooks to all students and staff at high schools. 

This digital collection is available 24/7 and all one needs to get started is an internet connection and an EMSB email address.    A wide variety of popular fiction and non-fiction materials for high school students is available, as well as content in French, Chinese and Spanish.  Digital books are compatible with computers, smart phones, tablets and eReaders. Titles can be read right in the internet browser or downloaded using the free OverDrive app. At the end of the lending period, titles automatically expire so there are never any late fees.  Questions can be directed to school librarians or to Annette MacIntyre, Pedagogical Services, amacintyre@emsb.qc.ca, ext. 7651.
