I've posted a number of times about ebooks in our collection. The Nesmith Library is part of two consortiums: GMILCS, through which you have access to 3M ebooks, and NH Downloadable, through which you have access to Overdrive ebooks. If you're new to ebooks, check out this page on our website.
Many readers like the instantaneous gratification of loading ebooks--a reader can download new books on the day they are released by going to any of the major online bookstores. Of course, this comes with a price.
The consortiums allow you to borrow without charge. They try to keep up with the demand for the new hot totals, but, you may often find yourself on a waiting list. Fast forward to six months, or a year later, and those books that were in high demand, have now been replaced by a new batch of bestsellers.
Here are some 3M titles that were popular a while ago, and, last I checked, were waiting for you to borrow!
