eBooks are a great way to take you to another world during lockdown

You can access our extensive ebook collection on CareyLink in the Library Resources button on the right-hand side. Then choose the CLI Library on the left-hand side. Once on the CLI Library homepage, choose Online Resources and then eBooks. The three wide reading databases are Borrow Box, Wheelers and Overdrive and both ebooks and audiobooks are available. Browse these databases or use the search function to find specific titles. When using Overdrive, login using your usual Carey login and password, and go to the Settings in your account and change the borrowing period to 21 days so you have the maximum loan period.

Of the books pictured, Keeper of the Lost Cities and Wings of Fire are books the Year 7s have been loving. The Year 9s are reading Growing Up Aboriginal in Australia as part of their English studies at the moment. There is also a LibGuide with more information about the contributors to this book. The True Colour of a Little White Lie (which will soon be made into a film), The Gaps and When it Drops are all titles from authors who visited us for the Literature Festival in May. Runner is an old favourite, set in Richmond in 1919 when the Richmond football club was on top of the ladder. Past the Shallows is a great literary text set in Tasmania and often chosen by Year 10 students and staff. So you can see in just this small sample that there is something for everyone in our ebook collections. Dive in today!
