eBooks South Africa

A first for the homeschooling community in South Africa, e-Library helps children and families access popular and top-quality books. Much like a traditional library, items are booked out and can be read online or downloaded to an electronic device. Our books are age appropriate, ranging from pre-schoolers to adults and members can enjoy up to three books for a period of two weeks at any time.

Audio Books

Audio books offer a wonderful learning experience, at home or on the move. Children will be captivated by the narration of our audio books and be transported to new worlds with exciting tales, knowledge and adventure. Listening to stories develops fundamental language and also teaches essential listening skills. Audio books further expose children to pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar.

Read Books Online

Our online resources also familiarise children with digital technology, using a variety of platforms to unlock a world of knowledge, fun and information. These are ideal for homeschooling and supporting all children to read with confidence. e-Library offers secure solutions to ensure that children access age-appropriate resources in a controlled environment.
