During COVID-19, the National Emergency Library is available and includes a strong collection of children's e-books.
For example, a search for works by the children's author, "Mem Fox" -- filter using her name as "Creator" -- yields 53 results.
To borrow a book from the National Emergency Library, create a free account.
Books can be checked out for 14 days.
As an Emory student, you are eligible to apply for a public library card with the Atlanta Fulton Public Library.
Go to the AFPL website to register for a library card online: https://afpl.ent.sirsi.net/client/en_US/default/search/registration/$N?pc=SYMWS
Once you receive your library card information via email, you will be able to access the AFPL's children's eBooks collection:
***Please note -- we do not have many children's e-books in discoverE. The majority of our "Children's Reading Program" collection is in print.
Use discoverE to find e-books. On the left-hand side of the results screen, you will be able to select to show only on "Full Access Online" or "eBooks." If you wish to limit a search just to ebooks, you can also use the Advanced Search and select material type: eBooks.
GALILEO database serves k-12 students as well as college students -- and that is why we can find children's e-books there.
