Please see the list below for places to find a great eBook for FREE.

Where to BUY eBooks

Below is a list of where you can find some free, discounted, or regularly priced eBooks for sale.

Local Public Libraries

                                                                Library House

Our wonderful local libraries are open for curbside pick up of books or limited in-person browsing.  All of them offer 24/7 online access to their digital collections.  

No card, no problem!  Right now some of the public library systems in our area are offering digital library cards that only require filling out a quick online form (with your parent’s permission).  After filling out the form you can then access thousands of online resources, including countless eBooks!

*Because you are under 18 years old, you will need permission from your parent or guardian to get registered*
