eBooks

eBooks are a free, convenient, and environmentally friendly addition to our collection. You are able to checkout eBooks at any time - even when the library is closed. With eBooks, you will never have to worry about losing or damaging books, or accruing overdue fines. Books will automatically "return" to the library at the end of the loan period.

We offer two different eBook collections

1. Axis 360 (Magic Wall)


The "Magic Wall" has lots of eBook titles, many of which differ from our print collection. You will find fiction and non-fiction for every age group and in multiple formats.  If this is the first time you are using our Axis 360 eBook collection, please continue reading.  Otherwise you can click here to access Axis 360 (Magic Wall).
