eBooks for Downloading
Please note: The six major publishers who print most of the hot-selling bestsellers so popular with readers will not sell the eBook version to public libraries. So as you check the resources below, please do not expect to find the current, new bestsellers. We have no control over what eBooks the publishers will sell to libraries.
 
 
 
Navajo County Library District is pleased to offer eBooks through Freading. Freading has thousands of titles to download to your eReader. Freading™ has its own apps for the iPad® and iPhone®, and its own apps for Android™ tablets and phones. It is also compatible with the Kindle Fire, the Nook devices, and Kobo devices.
 
Our patrons have available to them 3 tokens per week to use to download a book. Most books require just one token but bestsellers require four tokens to download. Thus, you can have access every other week to a bestseller. Some mid-range titles require two tokens.

Unused tokens roll over each week for a four week period, a week being defined as a Monday to Sunday period of seven days, beginning at 12:01AM Monday, Eastern time, and going to midnight on Sunday. At the end of the fourth week from the time you first logged in, unused tokens are cleaned out of your account, except for your original weekly allotment. The rolling over process then starts all over again, as a new four week cycle has begun.

Click here or on the Freading Logo above to go to the Freading website to register with your patron library card, which you must have to use this service. Have fun and happy eReading!
