About the eGO CT Community Share Program
Does your school use Destiny?
As part of the eGO CT program, the Connecticut State Library wants to deliver free ebooks directly to schools. There is a $500 fee to join, but the cost is covered by the Connecticut State Library - so there is no cost to schools!
What's in it for schools?
Bringing the Community Share initiative to your neighborhood means area schools can:
- Access a wealth of new, digital content for both students and teachers to enjoy
- Improve existing extra-curricular initiatives already in place for students, such as after-school literacy programs
- Pave the way for seamless cooperation with public library systems
- Source added curriculum-support materials for use in the classroom, off campus and as homework help thus creating a more robust learning environment for students
- Access customizable and systematic educational content that aligns with different ages and grade levels
- Integrate digital materials from the public library into the school’s online catalog and management system, such as Destiny® Library Manager
