Check out e-Books from Inkie.org Library’s platform which exclusively features content by Illinois authors, creators, and communities.
The Inkie.org Library is available to everyone in Illinois, courtesy of RAILS, regardless of whether they have a library card. Items on this platform have no holds, no waits, and can be accessed simultaneously.
Inkie also works with the Indie Author Project (IAP) to connect library patrons with great indie-published books, and users can submit their own self-published titles to Inkie to share in the collection.
Formerly known as BiblioBoard.
