eBook Catalog

Prefer to do your reading in electronic format? Browse our catalog to download your next eBook or eAudiobook.

Note: Libby is the preferred app of The Rachel Kohl Community Library. Another app you may be familiar with is OverDrive. Libby is a newer, updated app; it has the same titles available as OverDrive, but the app has been designed to be more intuitive and user-friendly. After February 2022, the OverDrive app will not be available for download, and Libby will be the only app available. The web-version of OverDrive will still exist.
