We have several e-book vendors which you can access with a valid library card.

OverDrive and Hoopla both have e-books and e-audiobooks. Hoopla also offers streaming and mobile download access to movies, TV shows, comic books, and more.

To access the collection, help guides, and online tutorials:

1. Go to sonomalibrary.org

2. Hold your mouse over Books & More

3. Select E-books

This page list all the e-book & e-audiobook vendors to which we currently subscribe. Each vendor has a different type of collection, and a different way to view or download a title onto your device.

You can click on the 'More Information' link below each vendor to learn more about that collection. 

Click on the 'Go' button to access a collection.

Example: OverDrive is one vendor with a large collection of best-seller e-books and e-audiobooks. Clicking on 'More Information' links you to how-to guides & online video tutorials for each device type.

In addition, each vendor has their own HELP pages with detailed how-to guides.

  2. Hi there — thanks for your comment. We'll add something here about returning digital books. It's probably not going to be a step-by-step description here because the process varies depending on which service you're using, whether it's an audiobook or an e-book, what device you're using it on, etc. The best idea when you're wondering how to return the book early is to check the Help pages on the specific service you're using... for example, here is a description of how to return books early on Overdrive.
