Ebooks, Magazines & Audiobooks

The library is always adding to its digital offerings. We currently offer three different services that allow patrons to download digital items to their computer or devices. All services are available to Crete Public Library cardholders. Assistance with using each of these services is available by calling the library at 708-672-8017 or viewing the Support documents below. Book-A-Librarian appointments are available for additional assistance.
