[aisle] E-books, audiobooks

I am from a small school using Follett Destiny.  We have only ever
purchased books individually; we do not have a subscription for
ebooks/audiobooks.  Kids log into Destiny to use the ebooks.  I have not
used another source as of yet.  I find the numerous steps to read the books
on a tablet or phone to be tedious.  I think there was something Tech set
up years ago when we bought our first ebooks--adding Follett Shelf.  But
that was so long ago now that I am not sure if that is still needed.
