Other Useful Sites - Free E-Books for Elementary Schools


A service of the Connecticut State Library and your local library

In order to help meet the growing demand for e-Books, this page presents major sources of free, downloadable e-Books at a time when iCONN is unable to purchase the most popular e-Books. We provide these links as a convenience and regret that we are unable to provide technical support for these sites.
