The Waldoboro Public Library is happy to bring you access to free downloadable audiobooks and ebooks.
Choose from a mix of adult and youth titles. For
ebooks, titles are readable on Mac and PC computers and some e-readers (B&N Nook, Border's Kobo, Sony eReader, and more), but they are not readable on Apple iPad or Amazon Kindle. For audiobooks, most titles will work on iPods, all will play on a Windows computer and WMA compatible portable devices. Log in with your Waldoboro library card number, and download the required player software to your computer.

MARVEL! provides every resident of Maine with access to a collection of full text articles and abstracts from magazines, newspapers, journals and reference books that are credible, reputable resources.

The value of the resources provided in these databases would be over $700,000 per library!
Click on the icon above to be taken to eSequels, an
online resource for listing book series in sequence and so much more.
From the eSequels site:
"eSequels is current and complete so you can find the newest title by your favorite author or spot a title that you may have missed.
eSequels lists the most popular series so you can discover a new author or rediscover an enjoyable series of years past.
eSequels indexes character, location and subject as well as author and title so you can identify a series that you may recall only vaguely.
eSequels gives brief annotations that describe each title without "giving away" any surprise endings.
And last, but most important for some readers, eSequels lists the novels in the correct reading sequence so you can begin at the beginning rather than blunder into the middle of "Act III." "
