Summit Library Offers Free e-Books for Download

Digital reading devices – e-readers – were among the hottest gifts this holiday season.  The Summit Free Public Library has good news for Summit residents who own e-readers: they can read new, popular titles -- for free.  The Library participates in ListenNJ, a service that allows library cardholders to download eBooks to a computer, then transfer them to an e-reader device.  Over 1700 titles are available, including books by such popular authors as James Patterson, Charlaine Harris, Joyce Carol Oates, and Deepak Chopra.

Now the selection of titles available to Summit residents is even larger.  ListenNJ is paid for by a consortium of libraries. The Summit Free Public Library has purchased an additional selection of eBooks that are available only to Summit card holders. In order to browse those titles, Summit residents should log in immediately when they visit the ListenNJ website by clicking on Digital Media Account, choosing Summit from the list of libraries, then typing in their library barcode number.
Once logged in, they can search for specific eBooks, or browse by author, title, or genre.  Advantage eBooks, available to Summit patrons only, are identified by a special logo with a gold checkmark.  All of the eBooks can be read on a PC or Mac using free reader software called Adobe Digital Editions. eBooks can also be transferred to popular e-reading devices like the Sony Reader and the Barnes & Noble Nook.  Unfortunately, the Amazon Kindle is not compatible with the ePub format of eBooks provided on ListenNJ.
To check out eBooks, users need a valid Summit Free Public Library card, a computer, and Internet connection.  At the end of the lending period, titles automatically expire and are returned to the collection. Users may return eBooks early.  There are never any late fees, and eBooks can be borrowed any time of the day or night.
To find out more about eBooks, stop by the Reference Desk, call (908) 273-0350, ext. 3, or visit the Library website at  The Summit Free Public Library is located at 75 Maple Street.
