Milam Ripples eBook Library
This webpage will provide you with a list of free ebook links and resources that will be posted through April 17, so you will have access to a library of ebooks at your fingertips. Think of this as Milam's online library. This is a great opportunity to try reading different kinds of books. Read with your family. Read to your siblings. Read outside. Read in a blanket fort. Read at night before bed. Reading can offer you a powerful escape as you use your imagination to travel.
Keep checking back as I will add new resources as they become available.
*Some of the resources on this page are open for the entire public to use and some are specific to Milam. I ask that any teacher or librarian that might use this webpage as a resource adhere to those guidelines. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
