FREE eBooks for District 163 Students

Open eBooks makes thousands of award-winning and popular electronic books available to K-12 students. Students can access FREE eBooks using an App that is available for download to mobile devices. The District will be setting students up with eBook accounts. Once set up, students can access the eBooks via the eBook app on their personal or parents' smartphone or tablet or via school devices.      

Partners in this initiative are Digital Public Library of America, First Book, and The New York Public Library, with content support from Baker & Taylor. A variety of publishers have generously submitted their full catalog or a selection of titles.
