Where can I get free books for homework and homeschooling?

Tip for UK parents. Borrowbox!

The young un is doing a project on London this week.

So I’ve been on my library’s Borrowbox app and have downloaded the Lonely Planet guide.

Sumptuous pictures. Easy to navigate. Free.

Not all homeschool projects need to involve Google. Books have been carefully put together so research can be far more efficient than going down internet rabbit holes.

If you have a library membership (and you can join online for free without going into the physical building), then you will have access to a great selection of fiction and nonfiction — ebooks and e-audiobooks — for adults and kids alike.

Not all library services use Borrowbox, but most seem to. And all will offer something similar, I would think.

Pleased to see Oak Academy offering a virtual library starting with Jacqueline Wilson’s Tracy Beaker. That’s brilliant. But I was surprised to see in news stories about this that the wealth of resources already offered for free by local library services was not mentioned.

Use your local library. They are there for you in lockdown. And even though you’re not paying anything, authors get paid by the PLR arrangement so it’s a no-brainer for those books you just need to dip into.
