Connecting Library Digital Collections with Schools
The Community Sharing initiative helps public libraries serve the needs of K-12 students and schools. With Community Sharing, public libraries can adopt Axis 360 as a platform for sharing K-12 titles, providing schools with a greatly expanded selection of digital content.

When public libraries and schools collaborate on digital resources, the entire community benefits. The Community Sharing program creates a connection between a public library’s ebook collection and their local school system, creating a deeper connection between public and school libraries allowing them to share material, improve circulation and enrich their community in the process.
