Junior Library Guild eBooks for Elementary, Middle School and High school students is offering our students unlimited access* to read books online from any device. There is no limit to the number of users and titles enter and exit the digital stream regularly, so there are always new picks available. See the books exiting soon.

Using the free JLG Digital Desktop version

How-to

  1. Click the school-level book stream of your choice: ElementaryMiddle SchoolHigh School.
  2. Ignore the Personal Account Sign-In box at the top of the page—just scroll down to the books and get started. You can even click the “X” in the top right corner of the sign-in box so that it goes away.
  3. Simply click on a book to go to its page, then click the “Read” or “Play” button to begin reading/listening. Audiobooks are designated with a headphone icon on the lower right corner of the book cover; ebooks are designated with a tablet icon on the lower right corner.
  4. If an audiobook fails to play, check your browser. Audiobooks will not play in Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge.

More tips

  • All books in the streams are multi-user, meaning an unlimited number of readers can access them at the same time.
  • A selection of titles will expire at the end of each month, so watch for the “Leaving Soon” banners to appear on the cover art. But, don’t worry—new titles will automatically be added to the streams at that time, too!
  • The Search feature will bring up titles that are not available to be read. These titles are not currently in the streams and cannot be accessed. Only books with the “Read” or “Play” buttons are the books available to read.

Parents, we realize that it is challenging to take on the responsibility of keeping children engaged in the education process when it has become necessary for them to remain at home. Even though they have packets or online classes and assignments, you may find yourself scrambling for resources to provide extra activities, projects, and books to keep young minds stimulated and motivated. We never want you to feel that you are on this journey alone! Below you will find links to resources that will hopefully help relieve any anxiety you may be feeling. I will be adding to this list as I scour the World Wide Web for fun and informative sites worthy of inclusion. Please check back often. If you have a resource that you would like to share I would be happy to include it in the list to share with our OSSD families. Email your comments or suggestions to me via the "Send Email" link at the top of the side panel under my name. Also, if you Subscribe to my page, you will receive a notification when I add content.
