Ebooks and Audio Books

We have several ways to read eBooks and listen to Audio Books.

You can access ebooks through Overdrive/Sora through our school (instructions below), and ALSO access a ton of books through the Wayne Public Library, through Overdrive/Sora and Hoopla (you can see about our partnership with the public library, and how to use Hoopla for movies, audiobooks, etc. HERE). You can also get books over the summer through AudioSync (see instructions below).

We also have a number of Non-Fiction eBooks available through Follett Destiny and through ABC-CLIO. For Follett Destiny, just go to our Destiny Catalogue, and below the search box, change the "Narrow your search to..." parameters to be "Material Type: Electronic Book (ebooks)".

For ABC-CLIO, go to https://publisher.abc-clio.com and type in the ABC CLIO login and password. Then, choose SEARCH from the left side of the screen, and search for your topic.
