From November to December 2018, Jarrell Independent School District experienced a 703 percent increase in the number of unique OverDrive users, making the district the national leader for new subscribers during that time.
OverDrive is the district’s digital library platform available 24/7 and accessible through any device.
“Our campus librarians really encouraged students to sign up for OverDrive to have access thousands of titles of digital content, including ebooks and audiobooks, over the winter break.” said JISD Director of Instructional Support Vanessa Ashcraft who oversees the district’s four campus librarians. “We are thrilled to see that our efforts paid off and that so many students signed up and are using this service.”
In recognition of this achievement, JISD was awarded $1,000 in bonus content credit from OverDrive.
