Expanded access to e-books through the eRead Illinois Program

eReadIllinois

The Villa Park Public Library, beginning January 10, substantially increased the amount of available eBooks through a new digital media platform Axis 360.

The Library is participating in the eRead Illinois Program, designed to increase access to e-books across Illinois. In the past, the Library has provided ebook access through My Media Mall and will continue to offer these books to patrons.

Axis 360 provides libraries and their patrons with a state-of-the-art system for circulating digital e-books from the eRead Illinois shared collection for Illinois libraries. Patrons at libraries participating in eRead Illinois will use the cloud-based delivery across a number of devices including iPad, iPhone, Android, Windows, NOOK® and Sony ReaderTM devices, and many more.    Instructional handouts are HERE.
