E-book Availability at Your Library


The L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library is proud to be one of the many libraries in the U.S. (90% of public libraries as of June 2014) that make a wide variety of e-books available to its customers.  

At the same time libraries are experiencing an increasing demand for e-books, some publishers are making it difficult for libraries to meet this demand.  Simon and Schuster currently refuses to sell e-books to libraries, HarperCollins has imposed a limit of 26 loans per e-book, and Random House increased its e-book prices by 100-200%.  As always, your public library continues to uphold free speech and the pursuit of unfettered access to information.  The library community continues to advocate for fair pricing and access to e-books and is strongly pursuing open dialogue with both publishers and lawmakers.  

** Chime in Please**
