The Library is happy to announce a new program to benefit the young readers of Indianapolis. The Community Share program makes it possible for the public library and participating Marion County schools to share e-books and e-audiobooks on a platform called Axis 360. We hope to reach and grow more readers together!
In order for us to begin sharing with the schools, IndyPL needs to move e-books and e-audiobooks for kids and teens that are currently in our OverDrive/Libby collection, to Axis 360.
1. From the free Axis 360 app from any Android, Apple or Kindle Fire devices:
2. On the website, from a tablet, PC or Mac computer.
The Axis 360 platform was added for two reasons:
1. To make it possible for Indianapolis schools and the public library to share a collection of e-books and e-audiobooks. Local property taxes support both schools and the public library. By sharing a collection, we can be more efficient with our spending and make more e-materials available to the students in our community.
2. To make it easier for young readers to find age appropriate content.
