E Library Access Improves!

HCS  Schools Learning Commons Now Offers Students More Access to eBooks and Audiobooks

HCS learning commons  offers free access to hundreds of eBooks and audiobooks through the shared collection of Heritage Christian Schools Digital Library. Now all students have access to even more titles through a program called OverDrive Advantage. 

With OverDrive Advantage, HCS Learning Commons  will be able to purchase additional eBooks and audiobooks exclusively for its students, based on their requests. Coupled with the shared collection, the Advantage program provides access to even more popular eBooks and audiobooks, along with extra copies of popular materials.

To gain access to Advantage titles, learning commons  students simply sign in to the website with their student ID upon arrival. Once signed in, the Advantage titles become visible along with the shared collection.


Students can easily browse for titles to borrow and enjoy on Windows® and Mac® computers, or on mobile devices like iPhone®, iPad®, Android™, BlackBerry® and Windows Phone. Users can read eBooks on the go with Sony® Reader, NOOK™ and more.Once the lending period ends, titles will automatically expire and return to the collection. There are no late fees.  To see some recent additions to our e library please sign in and then click on this link here.  Popular authors such as Robert Munsch. Kate Di Camillo, Paulette Bourgois, Betsy Byars, and Lois Lenski  are new to the collection.  Take a peek sneak:)

 If you don’t have your username and password to use our learning commons with the physical L4U catalogue or the E Library,  please contact Shandra Wiebe swiebe@onlineschool.ca

Homeschooling families be sure to check out new special collections including Missions (e books on missionaries) and Bible study and Devotionals.  You will find all your favourites including many of the Kay Arthur bible studies,  such as How to study your Bible For Kids,  and for the younger crowd Vegetales Bible or The Amazing Bible Adventures for Kids by Josh McDowell.
