Thematic eLibrariesDigital eBook Solution to Support Thematic Inquiry

Leveled eBooks Organized by Thematic Unit

These collections feature 50 high-quality eBooks for each theme across a variety of reading levels, from an ever-expanding pool of publishers. The price for Thematic eLibraries is $250 per collection, per school, per school year. A SchoolPace subscription is required to use IRLA eLibraries.

Titles are handpicked by teachers, curriculum specialists, and literacy activists on staff to ensure the best reading and learning experience. Thematic eLibrary titles are multiuser, meaning that any number of students can be reading a given title simultaneously.

To the extent possible, each 50 book collection covers the wide range of levels often encountered in each grade band. Titles will overlap across grade bands.

Titles may be downloaded onto iOS and Android devices so that students can continue to read when they do not have internet access.
