Students are now able to borrow eBooks from our eBook library, ePlatform. The eBook library includes popular and best-selling fiction titles for children and young people. It will offer your child access to books every day of the year, including during the school holidays.
Students can have 2 books out on loan at any one time, these will automatically be returned after 2 weeks. Alternatively, your child can return them earlier than this in order to borrow and read a new book.
The books on offer are age-related which means that your child can read books that are age appropriate.
The eBooks can be read on a computer or through the free App on devices such as tablets or smartphones.
Reading through your web browser on a computer
To access the eBook library click the icon above, then students need to log in using their Becket School username and password.
