Reading at home … for our older students, too!

OverdWe had shared in a previous blog post about a number of early-literacy focused reading resources available online for our students.  But did you know that students at Bayview Glen P.S. (and across the York Region District School Board) also have access to a large collection of digital resources (including many eBooks, graphic novels, audiobooks and streaming video) from OverDrive?

Resources are available on many topics across a range of levels, as well as many popular fictional titles and current bestsellers.  Students can use their student numbers to access the platform and ‘borrow’ digital resources from OverDrive, allowing them to read or listen on phones, tablets or computers (student may need to add a ‘0’ before their student number).  For more details, please see the flyer.

Many students also make use of the Sora App (available on iOS and Androis) to access Overdrive (be sure to join the library ‘yrdsb’) for a streamlined experience on their phones or tablets.

Be sure to check it out … reading is for everyone!
