Where to find the book you want

The best way to obtain a book to read is through the library in your town. Admittedly the computer card catalog might present a barrier to access for some users. But you are here on the computer.

The card catalog for your local library might also be online.

If you can not find what you want at your local library, ask your reference librarian about inter library loan. Many county libraries and even state libraries can access books from nearby libraries. They don't even charge you postage. Check into this. You might not have to buy the book you want to read. Red MORE about inter library loan. When you get to the Google search box, enter the name of your city and state to get nearby locations.

About Project Gutenberg

Project Gutenberg is the Internet's oldest producer of FREE electronic books (eBooks or eTexts).

Project Gutenberg is the brainchild of Michael Hart, who in 1971 decided that it would be a really good idea if lots of famous and important texts were freely available to everyone in the world. Since then, he has been joined by hundreds of volunteers who share his vision.
Now, more than thirty years later, Project Gutenberg has the following figures (as of November 8th 2002): 203 New eBooks released during October 2002, 1975 New eBooks produced in 2002 (they were 1240 in 2001) for a total of 6267 Total Project Gutenberg eBooks. 119 eBooks have been posted so far by Project Gutenberg of Australia.
