Keep reading over the holidays!

A.B. Paterson College is committed to bringing unique learning opportunities to our students and we are pleased to offer a free reading service, providing digital books and audiobooks. Students can download eBooks or audiobooks in three easy steps:

  1. Student portal
  2. Library catalogue
  3. Overdrive – open with A.B. Paterson College login details (student ID and password)

The digital collection is an extension of A.B. Paterson College’s physical library, only it is online with 24/7 access to eBooks and audiobooks. It is convenient for students to check out titles at home, on the weekends or during holidays with no worry about misplacing a book or overdues – these digital titles automatically return at the end of the lending period!

OverDrive can help students of all ages read more and improve comprehension.

  • Enrich vocabulary and improve comprehension and pronunciation
  • Introduce students to books above their reading level
  • Teach critical listening
  • Help busy kids find time to read

Students can read or listen anytime, anywhere on a computer, tablet, smartphone or eReader.
