Begin Again eBook

You might have to wait in line for this new Eddie Glaude eBook on James Baldwin, but by all accounts “Begin Again: James Baldwin’s America and Its Urgent Lessons for Our Own,” is well worth the wait. It’s a single user eBook in EPUB format, and is best read through a browser.


Four New eBooks

The best way to find these eBooks is to use the Search Everything function on the Library’s home page. The new borrowing options are for: “Between the World and Me,” by Ta-Nehisi Coates; “We Want to Do More Than Survive,” by Bettina Love; “White Fragility,” by Robin DiAngelo; “My Grandmother’s Hands,” by Resmaa Menakem; and “The New Jim Crow,” by Michelle Alexander.


Free Access to 7 Free eBooks

As a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19), Bank Street has temporarily moved to online instruction and distance learning. As a way to support libraries and their patrons, a number of publishers are providing, for a limited time, free access to their eBook collections through VitalSource and RedShelf. Select items will be available for free to instructors and students until May 25, 2020.


EBSCOhost & ProQuest eBooks

If you would like to read eBooks through the Library’s website, we suggest you use the Find Books function on the Library’s homepage. Once you have a list of results, check Electronic Books (left-hand side box). The Library’s sole eBook provided is EBSCOhost. In the past we also subscribed to ProQuest’s EBook Central and ebrary.
