At no cost, students, teachers, media specialists and other staff can access quality ebooks from many of Minnesota’s independent publishers.
Ebooks Minnesota makes approximately 3,000 titles from publishers such as ABDO, Lerner Publishing Group, Cherry Lake Publishing, University of Minnesota Press, Milkweed Press, Quarto and Coffeehouse Press freely available to all readers within Minnesota’s borders. The collection covers a wide variety of subjects for readers of all ages, including some of Minnesota’s best literature and nonfiction.
No process is required to “check out” a book. Readers can access any book in the collection at any time regardless of how many other readers are also using that book. This feature makes the collection particularly useful for schools that may wish to assign a single book to an entire class or even an entire school—without worrying about checkout limits or due dates. Readers can access the collection online or download an app via the App Store, Google Play, or Kindle Fire HD.
Ebooks Minnesota was made possible in part by funding from the Minnesota Department of Education through a Library Services and Technology Act grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Please contact Jen Verbrugge (651-582-8356) with questions or for more information.
