Library Reading Apps

Start Reading e-Books and e-Audiobooks from the Jefferson Library

Jefferson has a collection of free e-books and e-audiobooks to check out, download to your devices, and enjoy.  There are 3 different companies that provide us with digital books and audiobooks.  Most of these digital books are searchable in the Library Catalog–you need to search Sora separately.  Download the MackinVIA,  Destiny Discover, and Sora apps to read/listen to digital books.  Ask Ms. Wall or Ms. Z for help or simply start playing a bit:
