Raynor Memorial Libraries has hundreds of thousands of ebooks on a variety of subjects. Most of these ebooks are findable and accessible via our library catalogs (Marqcat and Marqcat Plus.) You can also access the ebooks by individual collections via the Ebook Collections.
You can read many of the ebooks online just using your browser on either your computer, laptop or in some cases, mobile device. You may be able to download/print/email a number of pages (it can vary by book or publisher.) You may also be able to download some ebooks in their entirety, but in many cases, these downloads are only temporary and require the free software Adobe Digital Editions on your machine.
