You have devices and we have eBooks and Audiobooks!
The website is: ugdsb.lib.overdrive.com. Upper Grand District School Board 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.
The Overdrive collection is an extension of your 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 being overdue – 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?
A quick link to access Overdrive can be found on our student portal – UG2GO. Students can browse the secure website of more than 1000 eBooks and 175 Audiobooks. Login using your Windows network username and enjoy on your computer, tablet, smartphone or eReader device. Talk to your Teacher-Librarian for more details.
