You can check out and read eBooks anytime, anyplace! As long as you have Wi-Fi access, you can check out books 24/7 and read them right away on a laptop, iPad,  or on any electronic device! 

  • These titles are web-based and accessible using each student’s specific username and password.  Your child’s username and password for this program is the same as their Type To Learn login information. This information is confidential and you are asked not to share it with anyone.   Make sure you put the letters hcps- before the username.                         EXAMPLE: 

Username:  hcps-riordan Password: XXXX 


  • Students may check out up to 3 titles at a time for one week.
  • eBooks are automatically returned at the end of the one week checkout period.
  • Items may also be placed on hold if they are not available.  When the eBook becomes available, the student will be notified upon logging in to their account, and will have 3 days to check out the item before it is made available to the next student waiting on the hold list.
