ePlatform
Audiobooks & Ebooks

The CAJ library is part of a consortium of other international schools here in Japan, so SSS members now have access to a large selection of audiobooks and ebooks. There is a limit of one item per patron at a time--but returning and checking out another book is immediate, so you can change books as quickly as you need.

To get more information and access to ePlatform, please write to sss@caj.ac.jp.

Digital Libraries for Kids

In addition to the SSS and CAJ libraries, we have subscriptions to a couple of kid-centric digital libraries that are available to SSS members.

Epic! is a digital library of fiction, non-fiction, STEM, graphic novels, and biographies for kids 12 and under.
