eBooks and eAudiobooks are free to borrow and download from home with your public library card. They expire automatically so there are never any late charges.

- Some titles are available right away and some have a wait list
Wisconsin's Digital Library is brought to you by the Wisconsin Public Library Consortium and with generous support from the Madison Public Library Foundation.
On March 18, 2020 the Madison Public Library Foundation committed an emergency gift from a reserve fund of $50,000 to add eBooks and eAudiobooks to expand this collection. The demand is so high that they set a goal of adding another $90,000 to that fund as soon as possible, for a total of $140,000 to increase titles in the collection. Learn more and consider donating.
