Digital Collections

Your Sunderland Public Library card provides you with access to several collections of eBooks and eAudiobooks, and digital magazines. These electronic items can be downloaded onto your computer, tablet, eReader, or smart phone. You don’t have to be in a library to do so, and can download these items in your home, at the airport… anywhere you are. If you would like a librarian to demonstrate how to download electronic items on your device, please contact us at (413) 665 2642 or to set up an appointment.

If you don’t have a library card yet, you can sign up for a free eCard to access our digital collections.
