More about E-Books and E-Book Help


We offer two types of digital books: Audio books and ebooks. An audio book is a narrated title which can be enjoyed on a PC and dozens of supported mobile devices. You can also burn many titles to CD to enjoy in the car. An ebook is a text-based title that can be read on your home computer, Kindle, Nooks and a variety of other devises including Mac and phones. Digital music and video can be downloaded to a personal PC and enjoyed at home or transferred to any supported mobile device.

Kindle requires a couple of clicks, most of the other formats require downloading free software. Then browse the collection of fiction, mystery, romance, nonfiction, best sellers, and more. You can check out titles using your library card and download to a home computer or laptop. At the end of the lending period, digital downloads automatically expire and are returned to the digital library. There are never any late fees!
