We Have E-Books!

Free e-books are available through the same program that provides our downloadable audiobooks, DigitalLibraryNJ.

Our e-books are compatible with the Nook, Kindle, Sony E-Reader and other popular  readers.  Our staff is happy to answer your questions about downloading books to your device. Detailed instructions available here.

We are adding new titles every week.  Because of the huge demand, most items have waiting lists, but you can place up to seven holds at a time.
