Library Trials New Ebook Platform

Love e-books?  We invite you to try Total Boox!  This week, the Santa Clara City Library has begun a trial of this revolutionary service with a rich offering of e-books.

  • Availability: All ebooks are always available for reading.
  • Simplicity: Just one click to download any ebook.
  • Freedom: No holds, no limitations, no expiration.

If you found other ebook services difficult, this one is very easy.  You can download any ebook you want, and as many ebooks as you want all at once, read them online and offline and keep them on your device for as long as you wish.

Choose from over 50,000 quality titles including:  mysteries, romances and science fiction to computers, science, self-help and business; from quilting, crafts, travel and cooking to spirituality, biography, memoir and YA literature.
