eBooks - Free Access to Online Books
Using the Open eBooks app, children from in-need families can access thousands of award-winning ebooks, including some of the most popular works of the present and past. They can read as many as they like without incurring any costs. The goal of Open eBooks is to encourage a love of reading and serve as a gateway to children reading more often, whether in school, at libraries, or through other eBook reading apps.
Open eBooks is a partnership between the Digital Public Library of America, The New York Public Library (NYPL), and First Book, with content support from digital books distributor Baker & Taylor. NYPL created the app, enabling children to read ebooks on iOS and Android devices.
ALL middle school students have been given access codes and passwords to the First Books library. If students have forgotten their logins, they may ask the librarian for the information.
