OverDrive our popular eBook and downloadable eAudiobook platform has reproduced! No longer do kids and teens have to trawl through bodice rippers and murder mysteries, instead they can go straight to a collection aimed purely at their level and interests. Each has their own attributes:
OverDrive for Teens: The highs and lows of body image, relationships and the occasional supernatural romantic conflict, adventure, death, and grunting.
The wonderful thing about eBooks and eAudiobooks for kids and teens is that there are no fines. Digital files are unchewable and are impossible to lose under the couch or under the landfill that makes up a teenager’s bedroom. They are also somewhat more interactive than print so keep kids and teens reading while maintaining a semblance of “street” credibility.
Have a look today and see what you think. You can get back to the main OverDrive collection by hitting the Home button to the top left of the screen.
