This service allows the Barton County Public Library to increase the size and diversity of its collection by offering access to tens of thousands of books, none of which require the patron to wait in line to download.

 The Freading service offers unlimited and simultaneous downloads, which means your entire family or book club can all download a copy of the same title at the same time! E-books check out for two weeks and can be renewed one time for two more weeks from the date you renew. Read on your computer or take the book with you on a compatible e-reader, smartphone, or tablet!

  All it takes is your library card and pin number (the last 4 digits of your library card number)!!!
