Tennessee Regional Ebooks and Audiobook Download System (R.E.A.D.S.) has expanded its services with a new digital collection website experience just for kids. The main digital collection, http://reads.lib.overdrive.com now has a separate site to provide a safe and easy browsing experience for kids.
READS recognizes the need to provide a safe environment for kids to browse library materials. Just as the children’s section of the physical library is sectioned off, the same experience is now available on the digital collection. This appealing and user-friendly page contains eBooks and audiobooks just for children. Browsing can be done by subject, reading level or interest level. Check this page out now, http://reads.lib.overdrive.com/kids.
The Kid’s Collection site filters the overall digital collection to just show children’s content, which gets kids to the titles they want faster! This new service is free for users with a library card. Digital titles are available anytime, anywhere and expire automatically, so no need to worry about late fees.
