I’m happy to report that all of the Big Five publishers have made their titles available for library lending in eBook format. They’ve all been already in for their audiobook format. It's been a couple of years now that they’ve made their decision to add their titles on the front list, mid-list and back list available to libraries. So that’s great news for readers. You’ll see all the New York Times bestsellers and all the different popular lists of titles that you should be able to find in your library.
