District and Library Provide Students Free Access to eBooks

SARASOTA COUNTY, May 31, 2019 – In an effort to stem the “Summer Slide” and encourage students to read, Sarasota County Schools and Sarasota County Libraries are promoting a list of eBook titles through Follett Destiny for summer reading. Selections have been thoughtfully made by grade level and include many different genres and writing styles. To access these great eBooks, all students need is their N# and password. All other titles may be found at local library branches in print, audio or eBook format.

To engage student interest and provide a spur to critical thinking, these selections may include some books that involve sensitive issues. The content of some of the titles may be more mature than younger students have previously encountered.

**Please note, this is a voluntary reading initiative. We strongly encourage parents/guardians to take an active role in the both the preview and selection of these titles prior to reading.
