There isn’t one right way to read a book. Some readers insist on feeling the weight of the latest hardcover in their hands, while others prefer to turn a page onscreen with the swipe of their finger. If you lean toward the digital way, Baldwin has thousands of eBooks available to download through our online libraries, OverDrive, Hoopla and EBSCO.

New to reading on a mobile device? The Library is here to help! We can to walk you through the steps and get you reading on the go in no time. Give us a call at 248-554-4650 to set up an appointment.
