Q. Do I have to pay for an e-book?


No, you don’t need to pay for any e-books in our collections.  Unfortunately, some vendors display ALL titles in their collections instead of only those that we have licensed or purchased, and you may be prompted for a payment.

In such cases, search the for title or author in the E-Books search box on the Library website to see if the title is available through another database. If not, request the title through the GET IT FOR ME service.
