Electronic books available at Rangeley library


RANGELEY — Rangeley Public Library Director Martin Gagnon recently announced that electronic books are now available at no cost for all Rangeley Public Library card holders.

The availability of electronic books is part of a determined effort to bring library services at the historic landmark up to current trends in the field. “We are excited to offer our patrons with electronic reading devices what they are looking for while still being mindful that technology is not for everyone,” said Gagnon. “While we will always seek to bring the latest services to our patrons, we know that we need to maintain a balance between new and traditional formats.”

An e-book is an electronic book, read digitally on a computer, laptop screen or on e-book readers. Unlike audio books, e-books are text only books in a digital format which are read page by page.

Complete directions to download either an audiobook or an e-book can be found on the library website at www.rangeleylibrary.com.

The staff of the Rangeley Public Library are available to help anyone download an e-book or answer any other questions. The library is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
