Do libraries offer eBooks?
As convenient as ebooks are for library patrons, they present libraries with important challenges. Ebooks are handled differently from printed books libraries own and can freely lend, trade or resell. It isn’t uncommon for publishers to provide libraries with free hardcover and softcover books for this reason.
