We started using it at my 7/8 building this year on chrome books and I am very surprised at the large amount of books the kids are checking out on it.  My one frustration is that each ebook they have checked out shows up as items out in general, so I often think the kids have more books out than they physically do!  But as for the access, you can set up categories, and my kids can't access titles for adults, or even upper level YA.  Lesley was very good at helping me it all worked out for the first time this year.

I am considering subscribing to this, now that the program is Chromebook compatible (https://ereadillinois.com/about/faq). Are any of your elementary/middle schools using it? One concern I have is that the students will have access to its entire library, including adult materials. If you use eRead, have you addressed this?
