SAFE eReading Room for Kids and Teens thru OverDrive

Wisconsin's Digital Library for KIDS - a SAFE place to read and explore!

teens

 

Kids and teens need a safe environment to browse the library. Just as we have the sections of the library in sections, we worked with our library partners to develop an appealing, user-friendly section of your OverDrive-powered website for kids or teens. — Audio books, E-Books, videos and more!

Once inside the eReading Room, all searches will show only kid or teen content. No adult content will appear in the search results. All titles in the eReading Room are also cataloged by reading level and other reading metrics to help parents and teachers select titles that are level appropriate for the young reader. As with all eBooks in your full collection, all titles can be sampled in OverDrive Read prior to borrowing or placing a hold.

All you need is your library card and PIN number to access on your computer, phone, tablet or other devices!   If you are having trouble accessing OverDrive – stop in the library and we will help you get started.
