Free access to eBooks

Did you know that your State Library card gives you access to thousands of free eBooks? If you are a current Massachusetts Executive or Legislative branch state employee, all you have to do is enter your library card number (located on the back of your card) at our digital catalog.

Once you’re logged in, you can browse available eBooks in a variety of ways, such as genre, subject, or popularity. You can also browse by device type, including Kindle, Android, and iOS, among others. Once you have found a book to check out, simply mouse over the book’s image for the option either to place a hold (if the eBook is currently in use by another patron) or to borrow the eBook.

Don’t have a State Library card? No problem! Simply visit our website to apply for a card today. We will mail you your new card, and you will be on your way to enjoying free access to a wide variety of popular fiction and nonfiction eBooks.
