Do you have a Chula Vista Public Library card?  If so, you have access to thousands of e-books from the Chula Vista Public Library.  You will need to install OverDrive on your desktop computer or download the free app on your mobile device.

Once you have installed OverDrive on your desktop computer or downloaded the app on your ipad, it gives you access to the Chula Vista Public Library e-book collection.  For this app, you will need a library card number to download e-books that you check out.

To access OverDrive once you download the app, you will also need to create an Adobe ID.  This requires you to provide an email address and create password.  Once you enter your Adobe ID there is a short tutorial and then you can go to “get books” to start downloading titles from the Chula Vista Public Library.  If you need any help accessing these free resources, please contact Ms. Gonzalez in the library.

If you don’t have a library card, visit your nearest Chula Vista Public Library with a parent/guardian and sign up.  It’s free!
