Plus, you can log in and check out your ebooks any time – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Borrowing ebooks from the library

To check a book out of the library:

  1. When you’ve found a title you’d like to check out of the library, select the green ‘Check Out’ button. 
  2. Once you’ve checked out an ebook, the title will appear under ‘My Reading’ (which you can find in the Home section of Engage), and will be available to download and read when you log in to the Snapplify Reader app.

    Note that the number of books you can check out at one time, and the time you’re allowed to borrow them for, will be set by your school’s librarian.

If someone else is currently reading an ebook that you'd like to check out, you can click the 'Add to Wait List' button. When the book is returned to the e-library, it will automatically be assigned to your account if you are the next user on the book’s ‘Wait List’.

If the ebook you're interested to read is not currently owned/licensed by your library, you can click the ‘Request Book’ button to let your librarian know that you wish to borrow this title.
