Knowledge is of two kinds.
We know a subject ourselves,
or we know where we can find information upon it.
(Samuel Johnson, 1709-1784)
Use Open eBooks to keep your reading skills sharp over the summer.
If you read over the summer, you just might return to school in August a better reader than when you left in June.
- See librarian for an access code and PIN for Open eBooks. You need the code and PIN for the phone app and to access either the All-Ages Collection or the High School collection online.
The Instant Classics library features eBooks open to all readers without a login. The collection is divided into two age ranges: Under 13 and 13 & Up. While some of these eBooks are available in Open eBooks, eBooks from this collection are read outside the Open eBooks app. Readers will download the file, then open on a desktop, tablet or phone's built-in e-reading app, such as iBooks.
: Users can view the Open eBooks library from a desktop without having to first login. Adults who are thinking about getting started with Open eBooks can preview the available titles. Readers who are logged in can find a title and send it to their device, where they can find it under My Books and download when connected to Wi-Fi. (From the Open eBooks website.)
