Using Follett Shelf

To find and check out an eBook:

1.  Click on the above Follett Shelf link.

2.  Log in with your regular computer user name (6-digit number) and regular password (first and last initials plus 3 numbers).

3.  You should see over 70 books available for you to browse!

4. Click on the book you’d like to read.  You can read through it without checking it out if you like.

5.  If you’d like to check it out so you can come back to it later, click on the backpack icon in the upper right-hand corner and click Check Out.  

Check out is for 5 days.  You can return the book early, otherwise it will check itself back in after 5 days.
