Fall Into Fall with Overdrive

Welcome back all ye digital citizens 🙂

It’s time to dig into learning and what better way than with an e book, audiobook, digital kit or digital workbook, some of which you can deliver right to your printer!  Just in time for Fall we have numerous workbooks which address the younger crowd!  Just search under the keywords Fall and many colourful books will pop up!

New to Overdrive this year is the ability for students to work in a Dyslexic font.  This will help your student read with ease!

Our collection of picture books continues to grow with narrated versions available for your non reading students.  Just choose Overdrive Read with Narration in the Format Feature as shared above in the image.  As more and more publishers come on board with Overdrive all of your favourite authors can be discovered, including; Robert Munsch, Dr Seuss, and Paulette Bourgeois.  Don’t forget you can recommend your favourite author to us as well using the Recommend Feature!

Don’t forget our many workbooks in Overdrive with publishers like Carson Dellosa, Evan Moor, and Rainbow Horizons.  These workbooks are correlated to BC learning outcomes on this page here.
