Dorothy Alling Library offers two options to download books from our website. Overdrive, a product of the Green Mountain Library Consortium (GMLC) and OneClickDigital from the Vermont Department of Libraries (VTLib).Together there are over 10,000 titles available with more added on a regular basis.
