Please check out our library’s petition website - ebooksforlibraries.com. What’s it for? It’s all about getting you guys – our customers – the books you want to read in the formats you want to read them in:

  • We are having trouble getting ebooks from the largest publishing companies. These publishers are adding restrictions and price increases, or simply not selling ebooks to libraries at all.
  • This means that our library customers can get a print copy of a book from a library, but can’t get that same book in an ebook format.
  • Goal – we need 10,000 e-signatures from readers like you.
  • Once we hit that magic number, we plan to mail the completed petitions to each of the big six publishers. Why? We want to communicate directly with publishers through this petition process, with the intent of establishing formal and consistent communication between publishers and readers.

So please – fill out our petition today!
