I can put in some links to info about Overdrive books, but what I'm trying to put together is about a DVD's worth of "here is the whole library. Take it home, read what you like, share with family members--learn to enjoy books on a screen." Can't do that with Overdrive.

I'm not entirely sure kids can legally use Overdrive w/o adult supervision; a lot of software requires the ability to legally sign a contract.

But I will look into what it'd take for the school to get an Overdrive account, and be able to download those books on its computers. Oakland libraries don't have Overdrive, but SF's are open to any resident of a California. No idea if they deal with organization memberships.
