ConnectED Initiative

Earlier this year, in support of President Obama’s ConnectED initiative, The New York Public Library, the Digital Public Library of America and First Book joined forces to launch Open eBooks, an app that provides FREE access to a library of thousands of eBooks for children from Title I schools and children served by special education teachers to use in school and at home.


We invite you to host a download party at your school so that students have access to this world-class library of books as they begin the 2016 - 2017 school year! Follow these instructions to get started.


ConnectED has additional free resources that have been committed by companies and we’ve attached a flier to detail these offerings, which include things like professional-grade software and mobile broadband.
