Brunswick County libraries now offer e-books!

The county has been looking at adding a digital book collection since July.  The books add to the county's online services that include NC Live, a database of older titles and classics, and the library edition of Ancestry.com.  NC Live can be accessed at nclive.org.

The e-book catalog enables residents to download a free application to start reading digital books on Kindle Fires, Nooks, iPads and computers.  The e-books can be downloaded anytime with Internet access, and residents do not need to be present at the library at the time of the download.  The borrow time will be two weeks each and the e-books are automatically returned at the end of the loan period.

The only requirement is residents have a Brunswick County library card in good standing.  Library cards are free to county residents and property owners with identification.

For more information, residents can visit the Leland Library @ 487 Village Road (910) 371-9442.
