The Books for DC project makes the DC Public Library's resources more accessible by bringing them to digital platforms DC residents already use.
With the Books for DC browser extension, you can now easily determine the availability of books, ebooks, and audiobooks at the DCPL as you browse Amazon, Goodreads, and Barnes & Noble.
Donate to our tip jar. Books for DC will always be free, but you can help defray some of the project's costs. Thank you!
