Frisco ISD Named Digital Library Champion

Frisco ISD has been honored for its efforts to encourage students to download popular and educational eBooks and audiobooks.

OverDrive, a leading national distributor of digital library content, recently awarded the District with its Digital Library Champion Excellent eBook Educator award.

Students and staff have free access to eBooks and audiobooks anytime, anywhere, on their eReading device.

To get started, students can visit http://friscoisd.lib.overdrive.com or download the free OverDrive app. An identification number is required.

During a month-long push in February, FISD schools boosted digital library checkouts 375 percent, thanks to a wide variety of displays, promotional videos, community events, contests and classroom presentations. Schools tailored promotion efforts to their campus featuring different mascots, school specific incentives and more.

Frisco ISD has offered the service since 2011.

“The District continues to experience higher check out rates and more students signing on to the program,” said Lone Star High School Librarian Ann Terry, who oversees the District’s partnership with OverDrive. “We are constantly adding new titles to our collection to address the demand as well.”

Terry has been invited to present information regarding FISD’s experience with OverDrive at the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) National Convention next month in Hartford, Connecticut.
