New E-Books, Just For You!

Ebooks

Thomas Memorial Library has begun a new collection of e-books in addition to what is available on the Maine Infonet consortium. Unlike the rest of our Overdrive e-book collection, which is shared with all Maine library patrons on the consortium, the new Advantage selection is only available to our patrons at Thomas Memorial Library, which will dramatically reduce wait times for that new book you’ve been holding out for!

Remember, these titles are for YOU, our patrons, but the only way our system knows it’s you is if you sign in to your account when browsing our selection.

If you see the following logo, then you know we own a personal copy!

We’re excited to start building our selection, and we hope you’ll enjoy!

If you aren’t sure where to begin, check out this e-book presentation!
