Commonwealth eBook Collections

The library is now part of the Commonwealth eBook Collection! The Commonwealth eBook Collection is made up of three different resources: Axis360 from Baker and Taylor, BiblioBoard, and EBL!

Please note that due to Amazon’s exclusive agreement with Overdrive, titles in the Commonwealth eBook Collection can be viewed on a Kindle Fire but not a Kindle reader.


Axis360 from Baker and Taylor contains popular new releases of fiction and nonfiction for children, teens, and adults in both eBook and audio book format. Many titles are from leading publishers such as Penguin Random House, MacMillan, HarperCollins, Hachette, and Simon & Schuster.

Axis360 allows you to check out up to three titles at a time. The interface allows you to place up to five holds. Once a hold is available, you will be notified by email and have three days to check out the title.




Biblioboard contains digital collections of books, articles, audio, and video from publishers and archives worldwide. These materials are organized by subject. Items range from romance novels to comic books to children’s stories and silent films!  Biblioboard has a very simple browser-based reader and they also have an app for tablets.



Ebook Central is also a web browser-based eBook lending platform which provides academic titles. The Ebook Central platform allows patrons to view books online and offline, to listen to the titles with the Read aloud feature, and browse through a title before borrowing.
