Digital Resources

Providing eBooks and eAudiobooks for the community is something we are very proud to do, but we face many challenges in doing so. eBook vendors have set very high prices and restrictive limits for libraries. Libraries pay more than 3x the cost for an eBook than an individual consumer pays. eAudiobooks are even more expensive. And eBooks and eAudiobooks expire–the libraries don’t own them forever. CT Librarians are working with legislators to pass bills that would end these restrictive and expensive practices. You can read more about this here.

How can you help?

Keep checking out eBooks and eAudiobooks!

Contact your legislators and tell them how important library eBooks and eAudiobooks are to you.


The Saxton B. Little Library offers a variety of free resources for our patrons.
