Looking for a way to keep reading over the summer? We curated a list of some of our favorite e-book and audiobook platforms on our Online Teaching and Learning LibGuide. All services are free to use at this time. Some may require you to download an app or create an account. Need a suggestion of what to read next? Check out the Abe 2021 book list or the the Illinois State Library's Read for a Lifetime book list.
As we look at the changing digital landscape and the increasing need for e-learning opportunities, Ms. Mueller and I went looking for resources to expand our e-reading options.
It’s no secret that we offer e-reading with our AXIS360: Ebooks and Audiobooks service. However, did you know that e-content also includes magazines and newspapers? Now, through June 30, we are participating in an RBdigital trial to determine interest in purchasing these products for next year.

December is one of my favorite times of the year. Not only do students and staff members ask for reading recommendations for the upcoming holiday break, they request help to find the perfect book for a child, friend or family member. With the thousands of books published each year, selecting the right book for someone could seem like a daunting task. However, it is easier than you may think.
There are plenty of book lists available to narrow down your choices. As there are a variety of readers and/or age groups, I chose four book lists to share. These lists offered different ways to organize book recommendations and should meet the needs of everyone.

If there is one constant between the ACHS English Department and the Information and Learning Center, it is to bring their love of books and reading to students, staff, and community members.
