Your starting point for accessing everything the library has to offer.

Exciting news!

All KDS students and staff now have access to the audiobook collection on ePlatform.

The audiobook collection is fully integrated with the eBook collection so if you are familiar with the ePlatform app or already read our eBooks on your computer you should have no trouble accessing them. If you haven't tried ePlatform before, scroll down to find out how to access on computer or mobile device.

This video shows how to download audiobooks for offline use so you don't have to use your mobile data to listen while out and about.

eBooks are a very convenient way to ensure you always have something to read even during school holidays or on a school camp. You don't have to come into the library to access them, they are available 24/7 wherever you have internet access. When you borrow an eBook you can download it to your device so you don't even need internet access to read. You can read eBooks on your laptop via the browser or download to Adobe Digital Editions; or on phone or tablet, there are apps for iOS, Android and Windows 10 available.
