Maine Schools Shared Digital Collection

Free eBooks and audiobooks!

In 2019 CHRHS joined the Maine Schools Shared Digital Collection! This is a consortium of Maine schools that provides our students with access to digital books and audiobooks. Graphic novels! Contemporary YA titles! Classics!

We also have titles that are just for CHRHS students - focused mainly on selections from our English curriculum, with a couple of contemporary offerings that are sometimes used for student-selected book groups.

  • Check-Outs - you can borrow items for two weeks, but you can renew!
  • Return Early - because we share these items with other schools, it's important to return items when you're done. It's easy to return an item before its due date!
  •  Number of items - you can borrow up to three items from the collection at a time.
  • Holds - see something you want that's already checked out? You can place a hold on the item so you are alerted when it is available!
