E-books 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 e-books 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 e-books can be loaded onto your computer, e-book reader, or mobile device at the same time—which makes carrying books with you while on the go less cumbersome.
