Check Out Our Handy Guide to Great E-Reads

We love helping readers find the perfect book, and over the past year, we’ve had to get creative in how we get them into your hands. So we’ve been doing things like creating recommendation lists on Bibliocommons, which link right to our catalog listings. (Check those out here.)

But! Do you realize that, as a library customer, you also have access to our many digital media services? With these services, you can easily download or stream e-books, e-audiobooks, and other media—and many items are available on-demand. No wait lists!

To help you navigate these services, our Youth Services team has compiled a collection of our recommended e-books and e-audiobooks. You can find links to these Great E-Reads on our KIDS website, as well as details about which services offer each title. Many of them are available on-demand with no waiting list.

➜ Does your child loves mysteries? We have a list for that! Looking for picture books? We have those too! Need more books that are just like Wimpy Kid? We’ve got you covered!

Check out all of our recommended Great E-Reads, and find your next favorite book!


Pssst! If you are new to these services, we’ve made a great overview video explaining how to use Hoopla. And you can find support for all our other digital services HERE. Don’t have a library card? No problem! You can sign up here for an e-card, which will give you access to all of our digital services.
