Late last term the Scotch Libraries put forward a submission to the Parent Association to help with the implementation and further resourcing of the College eBook system from Overdrive.com. It is with sincere gratitude that the library received a sum of $20,000 to purchase additional eBooks and Audio books to support our students in their drive to access resources both in print and in digital forms.

As part of this funding the library has been targeting fiction resources for the Middle School students as we prepare for our transition in October to the new building, and our temporary home until the new Junior/Middle School library is completed in the Stage 2 of the building process. Students will start to receive in the coming weeks a letter for parents with instructions on how to access the new eBooks and audio books from anywhere in the world. It is important that parents sit with their son and work through this process, as they will require permission to create of an adobe ID, a requirement to protect the publisher's copyright.

An important part of this resource is that parents will also have access to the eBooks and audio books. Simply log in with your normal credentials to start downloading.

As always, if you have any questions please contact any of the library staff or email library@scotch.wa.edu.au.
