Rolling Meadows is committed to bringing unique learning opportunities to our students and we are pleased to introduce a new, free reading service providing digital books through OverDrive (http://granite.lib.overdrive.com).
The OverDrive collection is an addition to the Rolling Meadows’ physical library, only it’s online with 24/7 access to eBooks and audiobooks. It’s convenient for students to check out titles anytime, anywhere with no worry about misplacing a book or running up late fees – these digital titles automatically return at the end of the lending period!
OverDrive can help students of all ages read more and improve comprehension. Struggling or reluctant readers, learning-challenged, second language learners, and gifted readers can all benefit from this service.
- Enrich vocabulary and improve comprehension and pronunciation
- Introduce students to books above their reading level
- Teach critical listening
- Help busy kids find time to read
How does it work?
To use OverDrive, students browse the secure website of more than 1800 titles, borrow with a student number, and enjoy on your computer, tablet, smartphone or eReader device.
