Audio Books and E-books


Audio books  and E-books are now available to borrow from our School Library.  Over 1000 books have been loaded into our library catalogue 'Oliver' and are also available through the e-platform app by using your student username and password. 


To download the app and borrow, follow three simple steps: 

1. Search for and download the e-Platform app from your app store.  You will find it at

2. Find 'Bundanoon Public School' library and log in using your DET student ID. 

3. Browse and borrow an eBook to read on your device, or an audio book to listen to.

 Books can be borrowed from our eBook library at any time and from any device.


Students simply go to their student portal, click on the 'Oliver' Library icon at the top of the screen and borrow the eBooks directly from our Library.

The eBooks are shown by the iPad icon beside them in the list. The books will automatically be returned after 2 weeks. 

eBooks are not here to replace hard copy texts as navigation of a complete text is invaluable in supporting comprehension, but they are another tool to support student engagement and access to reading.  Students can highlight a word they don't understand and get an instant definition.  

Font can be made bigger to support vision needs, changed for night reading and adjusted to assist those with Dyslexia.  

It is exciting that Bundanoon Public School is at the forefront of providing this new reading tool to students.

Happy Reading!
