A New Source for Free eBooks

December 9, 2013

A New Source for Free Books for Your Kindle, Nook or Other eBook Device

In addition to Southern Illinois Libraries On the Go, the library now makes available to its patrons the eRead Illinois 3M Cloud Library. This source of eBooks is accessible directly through the library’s catalog. You do need to download an app to use this eBook library on your device (Nook, Android, Kindle Fire or one of the many other devices this system works with), PC, or Mac. For information on downloading the needed app go to ebook.3m.com. Currently, the collection contains over 2,900 titles, many of which are new releases and currently reside on best seller lists. This resource was made available through a grant from the Illinois State Library. This collection has only eBooks, no Digital Audio Books (for those you need to use Southern Illinois Libraries On the Go). There are books that appear on both eBook sites, but each has titles that are unique to each site.

We still provide access to Southern Illinois Libraries On the Go through our website http://www.mtvbrehm.lib.il.us/ . There are almost 11,000 titles available through that site.

Handouts will be available at the second floor reference desk with more information on how to download from eRead Illinois 3M Cloud Library or Southern Illinois Libraries On the Go.
