How does it work?

Pre-Built Digital Subscriptions

Orca offers several pre-built digital subscriptions for many ages and reading levels. To order one of these subscriptions, add it to your shopping cart, check out online, and our customer service team will be in touch to set up your access.

Custom Digital Subscriptions

Orca is happy to build custom digital subscriptions to meet the needs of your school or library. Any Orca ebook can be included in a digital subscription. Unfortunately, we cannot include titles from our distributed publishers in digital subscriptions. Please get in touch with digital@orcabook.com for pricing and to discuss your school's or library's needs.


You can access your subscription in two ways:

  1. The Orca Digital app, available for tablets and smartphones. Using the app, readers can download ebooks to their devices for offline reading.
  2. The online reader is available for any web browser (PC/Mac).



Q: What's the difference between an ebook and a digital subscription?
An ebook includes a single license for a single reader. The license holder maintains perpetual access to the ebook as long as the format is supported. A digital subscription provides access to ebooks for an unlimited number of readers for a specific amount of time (1 or 5 years).

Q: How do students access the ebooks as part of the subscription?
Students can read online using the Orca Digital Web Reader or through the Orca Digital App. The app can be installed on their devices for online or offline reading.

Q: Can I build a custom collection?
Yes, you can! We can create a digital subscription for a single book or an entire line or series. Please get in touch with digital@orcabook.com for pricing and to discuss your school's or library's needs.

Q: Do digital subscriptions include audio?
Orca's digital subscriptions do not include audiobooks and are not narrated. Most screen readers will be able to read the text, but the Orca Digital Web Reader and Orca Digital App do not include a read-aloud function.
