Clever is proud to partner with Open eBooks. Open eBooks is a mobile app that provides thousands of popular and award-winning books free for students in Title I schools. These eBooks can be read without checkouts or holds.
The goal? To address the challenge of providing digital reading materials to children living in low-income households—and to encourage a love of reading.
After the district administrator has added Open eBooks on Clever, Students enrolled in Title I schools can download Open eBooks and access books for free from their mobile device.
First, District Admins add Open eBooks in the Clever Dashboard
Step 1: Log into your clever dashboard
Step 2: Request Open eBooks
Step 3: Scope the entire district with the application.
Please Note: the application is NOT added to the student Clever Portal because there is no Open eBooks webpage yet. The Open eBooks mobile application must be downloaded by students individually.
Second, Students must download the Open eBooks Application
