Digital books available at library

El Dorado County Library offers digital library service as part of its collection.

With this service library patrons have access to thousands of books that are available for download at all times. In the past year, El Dorado County patrons have downloaded more than 8,600 books using the free service.

To check out electronic books or downloadable audiobooks, users need a valid library card, a compatible digital device and an Internet connection. Popular devices include computers, laptops, tablets, iPads, Amazon Kindles, Barnes & Noble Nooks and most smart phones. Downloaded books can be accessed immediately and the books expire automatically. There are no late fees.

Patrons can check out up to three eBooks at one time and may opt to borrow each for seven or 14 days. Patrons can also place up to three holds/reserves on items not currently available because other patrons have borrowed them. Patrons are notified by email when their holds become available. Content is available for all age groups.

Ebooks and downloadable audio books can be accessed at http://www.eldoradolibrary.org.
