OverDrive

At South Texas ISD, we want to offer our students as many options as possible when it comes to reading. Just like everything else, books and their formats are changing too.

While the standard book format will be around for a while, the STISD libraries are embracing digital book formats as well.

We hope that if you have any type of device where you can access digital book formats, that you will take advantage of our ebooks and digital audiobooks that are available on OverDrive which is a free app you can download.

If you need any assistance downloading the app or books, please use Ask A Librarian and we will be happy to help you!
