    Get started by clicking on OverDrive link above to access on a computer or by downloading either the Sora or Overdrive app.

    Sign in by clicking the down arrow and selecting Bolin Elementary School.

    The library card number is the student ID number which is used as your lunch number and computer log in number. The password is the password you use to login on the school computers. You can also log in to portal.allenisd.org and open Destiny Discover to find eBooks and audiobooks. The eBooks and audiobooks no longer have the blue and white infiniti symbol, but they are the ones without green "IN" or red "OUT" banners. Clicking on the title you are interested in will take you to Overdrive to check it out.
