ebooks

Ebooks offer users the benefit of being able to carry several books with them while on the go, as well as the thrill of immediate access. Advantages of downloading ebooks from the Library's collection are that:

  • They are free with your library card!
  • They can be downloaded at any time—even when the library is not open.
  • Users will never receive late fees—the files automatically stop working at the end of their checkout period, and/or the user can simply delete them at or before the end of the checkout period.
  • Several ebooks can be loaded onto your computer, ebook reader, or mobile device at the same time—which makes carrying books with you while on the go less cumbersome.
