Our district has Overdrive now. It's solved th problem of what kind of devices to buy because the books are downloadable to all devices. Students are downloading books on their own Kindles, Nooks, IPads, IPod touch, laptops.. It's worked out really well.

I hope I accurately presented the information you provided – let me know if any changes need to be made.

As you probably guessed, we are all just beginning to get acquainted with using eBooks in Schools and this was helpful to see how schools are beginning the process.

Thanks again!
