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.
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.
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.
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.
