Digital Materials at JCPL!

You may have noticed there are a lot more materials in our catalog than there used to be. We’re trying to put everything at your fingertips, so we’ve included items from READS (powered by Overdrive), Project Gutenberg, and Open Library in our regular catalog search. Of course, with all that new information, we want to make sure you still find what you need!

If an item has this note:

Then it’s a digital item available through READS or our other digital item providers. If it doesn’t have either of those notes, it’s a physical item that you can borrow while you’re in the library, as long as it is available for check out.
