White, Black and Red Sony Ereaders displayed on a White Background

Don’t have an ereader? Want to check out our ebooks through CCFLS eStacks?

You check out books at the library but did you know we have more books available online? Many of them can be read on any computer right in the browser. Others you have to download to a device. If you don’t have an ereader and you’d like to read some of these books, you do have another option. You can check out a Sony Ereader for two weeks from the Fiction Department. You will have to supply some information and agree to our policy. Check with the Fiction Department for more information.
