Digital Downloads

Starting November 1, Macmillan publishers will restrict libraries, regardless of size or population served, to purchase only ONE SINGLE COPY of a new eBook title for the first eight weeks after its release. This means much longer wait times for eBooks from authors such as Louise Penny, Jonathan Franzen, Nora Roberts, and many more.

If you would like to challenge Macmillan's Policy, you can by participating in the #ebooksforall movement by  signing the petition at and sharing your opinion on social media with the hashtag #ebooksforall.
