E-Books at the Boise Public Library

Editors' Picks

In November 2010, the Boise Public Library introduced downloadable e-books through its website, allowing the public to access bestsellers and classics through its basic catalog. The public can "check out" up to five e-books at a time. The introductory launch, which included 800 titles, was so successful that library officials decided to double their e-book titles (more than 2,000) by the end of 2011. Yes, you have to be a member of the Boise Public Library and your account must be in good standing.
