We are very excited about one of our new programs this year- a consortium-wide eBook collection. Our members were given the option of joining this program to access a collection of eBooks shared by our member libraries serving K-12 students. Some Media Specialists chose their library’s collection while others opted to have the consortium coordinator develop their collection. All of these library collections, including books for recreational reading as well as materials that support the NJ state curriculum, are available to the eBook collection members. With a small individual investment, our students are able to instantly check out (and return!) books from BELS libraries all over Northern Jersey. We look forward to our collection growing and improving and we invite all our members to join us in this initiative!
