Harry Potter eBooks at New Canaan Library
In late March, the New Canaan Library became one of thousands of libraries across the country to get the newly available eBook versions of the seven-book Harry Potter series. The series is now available for checkout in the Library's OverDrive Collection. Though the teen wizard's adventures, authored by J. K. Rowling, have long been available in physical form, this is the first time they've been available to download for patrons' Kindles or other eReader devices.
Rowling's former agent, Christopher Little, estimated the printed books in the series have sold well in excess of 400 million copies worldwide since their release — and the eBooks just became available for purchase at a special website devoted to their sale, Pottermore, last week.
If someone else checks out your Harry Potter book first, you can still place a hold on it. You will be notified by email when it is available.
