E-RESOURCES

This page originally started out as a place just for e-books but I have since changed it to add in e-audiobooks.

E-BOOKS and E-AUDIOBOOKS

First of all, I am an advocate for print books.  I love the feel of turning pages and carrying books.  Picture books have been made in e-book form but I still prefer the print versions.

This of course doesn’t mean that e-books are not an option.  I have a tablet device and a smart phone.  I enjoy e-books and audio books on both of my devices.  E-books are great when the print version is unavailable.  The fonts and page style can be adjusted for easier reading.  It is easier to carry a small e-book device rather than carrying around a one-thousand page novel.

Also, there is something to be said about being able to listen to a e-audiobook from your digital device.  I really enjoy listening to audiobooks from my iPhone and often plug my phone into my car’s auxiliary plugin to listen through the car’s audio system.

The public library I work with subscribes to seven different systems for which have e-books and/or e-audiobooks.  They have BookFlixEBSCOhost eBooksenki Library, Hoopla DigitalOneClickdigital, OverDrive, and TumbleBook Library.  All of these services are web-based and/or app-based.  For free e-books and e-audiobooks I recommend having a library card.
