Scroll down a bit and open the MATERIAL TYPE limiter.  Select eBooks.  You have now limited your search to find ebooks only.

About eBooks

Axinn Library provides access to many electronic books (eBooks).  When searching the catalog, you will see a link to the eBook.  You can view the content right on your computer screen but in most cases, it is easier to read the book from an eBook reader.  Most eBooks can be downloaded to an eBook reader such as IPad, Kindle, Nook, etc.  Click on the link above for instructions on downloading eBooks.
