E-books

E-books can be a great alternative to visiting the library for a print book. Two advantages: they save space in your bag, and they automatically check themselves in when due– no more public library fines!

Our local and public libraries have partnered to provide you with THOUSANDS of FREE e-books. All you need is a free public library card to get started!
