OVERVIEW
The Becket Athenaeum offers e-books, digital audiobooks, and more from multiple vendors! 

Like regular library materials, e-books and e-audiobooks are checked out for a period of time, usually 14 days. When they are due back, they simply leave your device and become available for the next interested patron. Also like other library materials, there are a limited number of digital copies of any given item at a time. 

The Commonwealth e-book Collections include Axis360, Biblioboard, and EBL. You can search all 3 collections at once by visiting ​ebooks.masslibsystem.org.

NEED HELP?
If you're new to e-books and need help, bring your device with you to the library and we'll help you get set up to take advantage of our vast collection!

*IMPORTANT* To download e-books from most of our vendors, you will need to know your library card number and the PIN associated with your account. The PIN is set to the last four digits of your library card number. If you don't know your card number or are having issues, give us a call.


Please note: EBL log-in accounts can only be created from within the library. Once you create an account, you will then be able to log-in remotely.
