OverDrive : eBooks and audiobooks
NEISD students, teachers and parents are invited to check out eBooks and audiobooks from the NEISD Overdrive digital library.
All students and teachers need is their NESID ID Number to access this library and to check out electronic and audio books on most digital devices (including cell phones)!
Select Overdrive Read as your format if you want to read eBooks in your browser and rather than downloading them in a specific format.
Parent passwords expire annually in August. Thousand Oaks Parents will need to contact Mrs. Casseb in the library to have a new password created.
P.S. the San Antonio Public Library also has an OverDrive digital library. You just need a library card. Happy Reading!
