Unless I somehow haven't found it, my library offers zero, zip, zilch, nada, none as far as ebooks go. Audiobooks...yes. ebooks...no.

If anyone else is in Wake County (Raleigh) NC and I'm wrong, please let me know.

It's nice, I've only been asking them for a couple of years (they've had OD audiobooks for years now).

oh, this is funny....I just went back to the library web site and found:

When will downloadable eBooks be available?
Downloadable eBooks will premiere on our Overdrive website at 10:00am on August 2nd.

Adelaide, Australia. There's no library within 800km that has ebooks.
Ahh, Adelaide. I remember it well.

Hi all,

Shire of Nillumbik (20 km or so NE of Melbourne) library has a relationship with the Brisbane library (2,000 km to the north), and they share around 1,900 ebooks in pdf.

Cheers,

Whoo-hoo! My library did go live today with epubs!! (They previously already had audiobooks thru Overdrive.)

They have 154 ePub ebooks
They have 152 mp3 audiobooks
They have 888 WMA audiobooks

They seem to have purchased 5 copies of each ebook. You are allowed to check out 5 at a time for either 7 or 14 days.

Yay!

Mine (Navy General Library Program) has 885 fiction, 1330 nonfiction, all a mixture of PDF, mobi, and epub but I think mostly epub.

My home town Kitsap Regional Library in Bremerton, Washington has 392 fiction, 485 nonfiction, again a mixture of PDF, mobi, and epub. This one has children's books and the Navy one doesn't.
