Introducing eBooks On Demand from the Library & Technology Center

Screen Shot 2013-10-22 at 3.19.12 PMThis week in the Library & Technology Center classes, fourth and fifth grade students are learning about BrainHive--an on demand ebook library where Pine Glen students can "check out" ebooks to read online or on their iPads. Every time an ebook is checked out, it charges the LTC $1.  

I asked the students, "What can you get for $1?" and most of the answers were things like candy and other stuff at the dollar store. But with Brain Hive, students can read an ebook for $1! That's a great value. We watch movies On Demand and now students can read ebooks On Demand! This is a great way for the LTC to provide ebooks without paying for access to the entire collection up front. Click on the bee above for more information about logins and how to access it at home.
