Options when looking for e-book and e-audiobook content

In addition to our academic eBook providers you may be interested in making the most of your local public library for eBook fiction and movie content available from home. In Kingston see Kingston Frontenac Public Library for OverDrive (eBooks & Audiobooks), Digital Magazines, and Hoopla (Movies, TV, Music & Audiobooks). Please note, expect cloudLibrary to replace these services at KFPL as of May 27, 2020.
