Digital Reading Platform

During my first school year, my mentor introduced me to Epic! With over 20,000 digital books, Epic! is one of the most comprehensive digital reading platforms out there, and it's free! The platform has books available in various formats:

Epic! has allowed me to expand my library, and I've used many Epic! books in my lesson plans.

A few additional thoughts...

Epic! School is free for educators, but access is limited to about half of the site's library, and can only be used during traditional school hours (7 a.m. to 3 p.m.). Epic! School Plus is a paid subscription, which provides full 24/7 access to the full library. I, and many of my colleagues, have the free subscription and it's efficient for school librarian's needs.  

Ease of Use
Epic! is simple to use and fun for students. With your account, you can build a library of your favorite books to use year over year. This is especially useful if you have digital lesson plans and can just include the link to an Epic! book for a lesson. 

Overall, I recommend Epic! to teachers and school librarians!
