Children's e-books in the National Emergency Library


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.

Searching for E-books in DiscoverE


***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. 

  • In GALILEO, select "GALILEO Kids (Grades k-5)" on the lower right to view "EBSCO e-books" and other online resources for kids.
