Getting Started with eBooks, eAudio & eMagazines

Did you get a shiny new device over the holidays - or have you had one for a while and not explored many of its possibilities? Are you a reader - or a listener? Use your gadget to bring books to you, anytime and nearly anywhere. There are never any late fees because books return themselves. Automatically. Another very cool thing about eBooks - you can change the print size to personalize your reading experience.

Whether you’re looking for something to listen to while driving or doing some other kind of hands-on activity or want to settle in with a cup of something warm for a solid read, there are thousands of books waiting for you to download. 

Want to try something new?
