What is an E-Book?

An e-book is the electronic version of a printed book. E-books are:

  • convenient
  • read online from a computer with an internet connection and sometimes downloaded to a handheld device
  • available 24/7 and located using the Library Catalog
  • easy to navigate - the table of contents can quickly get to the section you need
  • searchable - search the text of the book to find information

Kindle E-Books

Kindles are available for checkout with a variety of current best sellers to supplement our Leisure Reading collection.

You can view all titles in our Kindle Library or titles from three different types:

  • Genre - works of Fantasy, Mystery, Romance and Science Fiction
  • Fiction - works of contemporary Fiction

E-Book Databases

E-books have different requirements for downloading, printing, and check out. See the Help pages for each e-book database for specifics.

E-Books from Public Libraries

If you can't find a work of fiction in LCC's collection, try searching area libraries listed below. If you live outside of the Lansing area, check with your local public library. Many libraries allow you to apply for a library card online and access e-books and e-audiobooks from a computer or mobile device.
