Students should also check the eBook collections of their local public libraries. While most public libraries don't hold academic textbooks, they might have other titles on your class reading lists available for eBook checkout.  Most public libraries in Ohio participate in the Ohio Digital Library, which is part of OverDrive. It provides digital access to eBooks, audiobooks, magazines, and movies with your public library card.
