Please watch this video to learn more about our school ePlatform.
The ePlatform is full of bestselling, popular fiction titles and offers students a 24/7, 365 library while our print library in school is out of action. Students can borrow one eBook title or audiobook at a time, and that title will automatically return after 2 weeks, or students can return it earlier to loan a new title.
