Project Gutenberg: our new collection

We are pleased to announce that we've added to our collection of e-books by adding nearly 2,800 books to our Overdrive (Libby) collection.
These books are part of the Project Gutenberg collection.

We've promoted Project Gutenberg before via our lists however you can now search for those titles within our catalogue.
The books include fiction and non-fiction covering genres such as study aids, essays, literature, reference and biographies and subjects including art, history and philosophy.
Literary classics are available such as "Dracula", "Treasure Island" and "The Wizard of Oz".

Although most of the books are in English, there are also some works in German, French, Chinese, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese and Latin.
You can read Goethe, Kant and Faust in German; Voltaire, Baudelaire and Hugo in French; and Confucius, Yangming Wang and Xueqin Cao in Chinese.

There's so much to explore. If you have a "must read" list, you will want to add to it from this collection!
