myON And Other Digital Reading Resources for Kids
Every Hillsborough County Public School student now has access to myON, an online digital book platform created by Capstone Publishing containing books for students in grades K-8. Like Tumblebooks, these books can be read directly online rather than having to be downloaded or checked out.
If your student has forgotten how to login to myON, please help them to follow the steps below:
- Go to the myON website. You can find a link to myON on our website using the following path: Just For Kids > Reading & Books > Books & Stories Online > myON Reader.
- Click “Login Now” at the bottom of the screen
- Type in the child’s School Name
- Type in the child’s Username: (their seven digit student number/lunch number)
- Type in the child’s Password: birth date month and year (Example: July 2005 = 072005)
When visiting the library, this site can be reached from all Just for Kids computers in addtion to any regular internet-access computers. If you have any trouble logging in, please see a librarian for assistance, we are happy to help.
