eBooks & eAudiobooks

Thousands of eBooks and eAudiobooks are at your fingertips!

How do we love eBooks from the library? Let us count the ways. They’re free. You can lug around Jonathan Franzen’s Freedom on an e-reader and give your arms a rest.  eAudiobooks can make your long commute more bearable. What’s more, no one can see what you are reading: Romance readers rejoice! We hope you’ll try them if you haven’t already.
