eBooks Now Available for Download

Olean Public Library in conjunction with the Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Library System is pleased to announce the addition of downloadable eBooks to our collection.

The collection may be accessed here. There is no charge for downloading the eBooks, all you need is your library card and PIN number.  The books are available in EPUB or PDF format (depending on the title).

Patrons are allowed to check out 5 eBooks at a time but be aware there are no renewals.  You may select a lending period of 7 or 14 days and early returns on eBooks are allowed.  You can also place holds on titles which are already checked out.  Titles automatically expire from your reader or computer, so there are never any late fees!
