Ebooks MN

Ebooks Minnesota is an online ebook collection for all Minnesotans. The collection covers a wide variety of subjects, both fiction and non-fiction, for readers of all ages, and features content from our state's independent publishers, as well as national and international publishers.  

The collection is hosted on the MackinVIA platform, using the familiar IP-range method we use for the eLibrary Minnesota (ELM). No digital rights management (DRM) is required. Currently, all ebooks are available for unlimited, perpetual access.
