Can’t find your favorite author’s ebooks in our OverDrive catalog?

Can’t find your favorite author’s ebooks in our OverDrive catalog? D0 you know libraries can’t buy eBooks from many publishers? Unlike a regular person, a library cannot pay Amazon or Barnes & Noble for an eBook and then lend it out to people.  We can buy a printed book from these companies and lend it out but digital content is treated differently by the publishers and the companies who manage digital content licensing.  We want to offer you these eBooks but these companies won’t let us. As your library, we are committed to continuing advocacy for change in these policies. The following publishers currently refuse to sell or license eBooks to libraries:

  • Macmillan Publishing
  • Simon & Schuster
  • Penguin Group
  • Brilliance Audio
  • Hachette Book Group
