What is Freading?
Freading is a service the library subscribes to which gives our patrons access to e-books. Enjoy 12,000 titles from a variety of genres, with new ones being added every week. Unlimited access, so there's no waiting!

Includes: e-books only
Format: EPUB, PDF
Loans: 2 weeks, based on tokens
Renewals: Yes

  What's Required?
In order to access Freading, you will need a valid library card, Internet access, and a computer or a compatible mobile device. To learn more about which devices are compatible, see Help - Compatible Devices.

Your computer or mobile device also needs to be authorized with an Adobe ID. If you have used library e-books before, you have probably set this up already. For more information, see Adobe IDs and Adobe DRM.
