When a class of Center Grove fifth-graders was asked whether they’d prefer to read from an e-reader or a traditional book, more than half of the students said they still prefer their hard-bound or paperback books.

But schools have seen steady growth in interest in e-books and have been working to add more titles to their libraries.

Center Grove’s e-library currently has about 2,500 popular and contemporary titles, such as “Harry Potter” and “The Hunger Games,” more than twice the number the school district had in January 2011. Clark-Pleasant schools, which launched an e-library for middle and high school students in April, now has about 300 contemporary titles students can check out, up about 100 from when it first launched.
