Libraries are about much more than books these days. The Ferguson Library has holdings of popular and educational materials in digital formats, including ebooks and eaudio. We are always adding to this ever changing collection to stay up to date with the latest digital formats. Our electronic materials are available to Ferguson Library card holders.
The Ferguson Library has digital media in several different formats.
Generally, e-audio books may be heard, e-video materials viewed, and e-books read on an ereader, tablet or other device.
Introducing our New York Times Bestseller eBook Collection
The library has 7-day copies of some of the hottest bestsellers available on a first-come, first-served basis as ebooks.
We also have New York Times bestsellers loaded onto Kindles and Nooks that are available for borrowing. You can check out these pre-loaded ereaders at the first floor fiction desk at the Main Library. Pre-loaded ereaders are available for a three week loan.
Why you might not be able to find an e-book in our digital media catalog:
• All titles are not available in digital format.
• Not all publishers release digital titles at the same time as print.
