Free eBooks Always Available

The holidays are jing’ jing’ jingling our way, and we would be willing to bet there will be eBook readers and tablets galore gift wrapped for loved ones these next few weeks. This means many more digital checkouts are coming to our eMedia Catalog. You may not find a best seller available for immediate checkout and downloading but it doesn't mean you can't find something good to read!  You will always be able to find a great title, such as the Adventures of Pinocchio and The Adventures of Robin Hood or Alexander the Great and Anecdotes of Animals, to download and enjoy instantly. These titles can be read using any EPUB-compatible software and transferred to EPUB-capable eBook readers, including Sony® Reader, NOOK™ or Kobo™ eReader.  (If you got a Kindle Fire or a tablet running Android, download the OverDrive Media Console for Android to read ePUB books.)

While Project Gutenberg titles can be found elsewhere on the web, we have removed duplicate titles. There are then tens of thousands of DRM-free eBooks available to readers, all with no holds, waiting lists or authentication.  And, as an extra bonus, titles downloaded from our library’s Project Gutenberg collection do not expire and do not count against your checkout limit.
