Take Advantage of FREE Downloadable E-Books Today!

Electronic books, or “E-Books” are a tremendous new phenomenon, and many people are now downloading books to their personal computers, iPads, Kindles, Nooks and other portable devices.


I urge Nassau County residents to take advantage of numerous free downloadable books available via Internet download.


As the demand for E-book lending increases, the Long Island Library Resource Council (LILRC) has announced a number of web-based resources which provide free access to downloadable books:


· Project Gutenberg: One can download over 33,000 free E-books.  (

· Free-e-booksnet: “the internet’s #1 online source for free ebook downloads.” (

· Get Free A site that brings both authors and readers into the world of free E-books. (

· Many Books. Net: More than 29,000 E-books available. (

· University of Pennsylvania: Over 1,000,000 free books on the web. (

· SmashWords: E-books from independent authors and publishers. (

· Internet Archive Text Archive: Contains a wide range of fiction, popular books, children’s books, historical texts and academic books. (
