    Each school library has over 400 eBooks and audiobooks available for student and staff use through MackinVia.

    All students and staff can use these materials at any time from any location by simply connecting directly through MackinVia. To log-in to your own MackinVia account just follow these simple steps:

    1.) Enter the name of your school. It is best to choose it from the drop-down menu.

    2.) Enter your school Google login and password into the MackinVia User ID and password fields.

    3.) Open or Check out the eBook you want to use. You do not need to check out a book to read it.

    4.) When you have finished with an eBook or audiobook that you have checked out, log in to your MackinVia account and return the resource so the next person can use it. All checkouts end after 14 days unless you renew them through your MackinVia account.

    If you are on a desktop computer or laptop, you can use the eBook or audiobook directly online. To use and download eBooks to use your own eReader, smartphone or tablet, download the MackinVia eReader app. This app is free with no in-app purchases available.
