The digital library offers 24/7 access to human-read audiobooks including K-12 curriculum and textbooks, literature, and popular titles. Students also participate in pre-organized virtual reading events to support teachers' efforts to engage, motivate, and inspire students to read all year long.

Learning Ally CEO, Andrew Friedman said, "I extend my gratitude to the American Consortium for Equity in Education for recognizing Learning Ally.
