Grant expands access to e-books

Published: Friday, June 6, 2014 11:42 p.m. CST

Patrons of several local libraries can access thousands of digital books through their computers, tablets and mobile devices thanks to a grant from the Illinois State Library and Secretary of State Jesse White’s office, according to a news release.

The eRead Illinois collection can be accessed online at www.ereadillinois.com under the "For Readers" section. Patrons must have a valid library card from a library that subscribes to the program. According to the website, libraries that subscribe include Cortland Community Library, Clinton Township Public Library in Waterman, Hinckley Public Library District, Sandwich Public Library District, the Flewellin Memorial Library in Shabbona, and Somonauk Public Library District.

The digital media and delivery software platforms are fully ADA-compliant and have been developed to work with the leading screen-reader technologies and refreshable Braille displays.
