Ebook platforms and collections

Click on the titles below to learn more about each ebook platform or collection's functionality.

The library doesn’t purchase every ebook on every platform, so you might see ebooks to which you don’t have access on a publisher’s website or platform. The best way to check for access to an ebook is by searching the library catalogue.

If you have the option of downloading a book for offline reading, you may be asked to download Adobe Digital Editions.

If you have questions or need additional help, ask a librarian.
