The Catoosa County Library has partnered with Baker & Taylor's Axis 360, a digital media library, to provide eBooks for our patrons.
To access our digital media library, your Library card must be issued from the Catoosa County Library.
eBooks can be read using the free Blio App. This can be downloaded to your Windows PC, iPhone, iPad, Android or Kindle Fire. Readers can download EPub/PDF titles with the Adobe Digital Editions App, onto their Nook, Kobo and other dedicated e-readers. Both Apps are available on the ebook platform, the Magic Wall. Kindles are not supported at this time.
You can find ebooks by searching the collection through Axis 360. You will need your Library card, issued from the Catoosa County Library, and your pin (password). You may check-out 4 books at time, for two weeks. Holds can be placed on checked-out titles, and will be held for 5 days, when they are available.
