Our collection includes OverDrive and now ePlatform by Wheelers to give you even more choice.

This includes classics, new releases, nonfiction and bestsellers for all ages. 

You can borrow anytime and enjoy automatic returns with no late fees.

To read eBooks with basic functionality including the ability to return titles early, our updated advice is to download the free Bluefire Reader application (works with both OverDrive and ePlatform titles) through the app store to your compatible eReader, iPad and smart phone anytime, 24 hours a day.  If you need assistance setting up, click here.
