Do I have to check out eBooks to read them?
Many eBooks do not need to be checked out, meaning everyone can read them at the same time—at school, home, or anywhere you have access to the Internet. Other eBooks can only be read by a certain number of students at one time.
How do I download an eBook to my device such as a tablet or smartphone?
Once a title is checked out to you, you can easily download it to your device for offline reading inside the app. Look for the Download button next to each title in your list of checkouts.
