    My (ver small) public library does not do any e-books, but I pay $25/yr for a membership to the library in a bigger city about an hour away. We go once a week anyway to get books, but it also includes a state e-library, there are around 30 cities and towns who contribute to this on-line library, and it keeps getting better and better! When I first got a Kindle 3 years ago, it was mostly adult romance novels or other fiction. Now they have movies, tons of audio books, I've notice a HUGE increase in kids titles, and they also have periodicals (even AMerican Girl Magazine!). This is the best $25 I could spend, and I often tell people who have kids who love to read on Kindles to just go there and pay for the membership just for the on-line library portion! Some books are Kindle, some are Overdrive only, but you can always choose to open them in an internet window and read that way (on the Kindle Fire).

    So, I guess if there is a larger city or town closeby, call up their library and see if they have an on-line library or if they are part of a co-op of libraries

    What city, FreeThinker?

    TFZ they seem to charge for non-state residents if they allow them at all, although FT is charged at hers.

    Huh. Well I can see why you'd pay, FT. Magazines and streaming video is a good deal.
    I'm a work-at-home mom to three, homeschool enthusiast, and avid planner fueled by lattes and Florida sunshine. My oldest is 6 and is a fircond grader (that's somewhere between first and second, naturally), my preschooler just told me she wants to learn how to read, and my toddler is a force of nature.

    I gather all kinds of secular homeschool resources and share them at
