Download eBooks

Check out up to five books at a time; once you have checked out a book, you can download it to your computer and to a portable e-reader device. Choose your lending period of 7 or 14 days. The files on your computer and/or ereader automatically deactivate at the end of the lending period, so you never get late fees.
