A trustworthy environment for students in grades PreK through 5 to look up facts for class projects or fun, Explora for Primary Schools includes full-text articles from the most popular children's magazines and eBook content from top children's publishers as well as encyclopedia entries from Funk & Wagnalls. Lexile reading levels included.

Starting in Fall 2023, the public library user experience of Explora will more closely align with the INFOhio user experience.  The goal is that a student using Explora at school will have a similar set of resources and results when they use Explora at home or at their local library.  Here is what that will look like:
