Children's Ebooks

Did you know you can check out ebooks from the library? In order to do so, you search and download via Overdrive Media Console. There are "how to" pages online to walk you through the download process. There are also brochures here at the library to help, or as always, just ask one of us.

As ebooks have grown more popular, the Hamilton-Wenham Library has been purchasing titles just for you to check out. We've recently acquired a few children's titles, and will be adding more. There are a lot more children's ebooks and audiobooks that are available to all members of MVLC including you. Check one out today!

For a list and summary of the children's titles exclusive to Hamilton-Wenham, click here.
