Finding eBooks Online

You can access the library’s extensive collection of ebooks online. We include many of our popular titles as ebooks.


  • are accessible 24/7
  • do not need to be requested
  • do not incur fines
  • are a good option if working away from the CEC

Most of our ebooks are accessible via the Library Search catalogue. Here’s how to find an ebook…

Find an ebook on Library Search
Go to Library Search and select the “Search Books and More” tab, enter your search terms and click the search button. Your search results will be presented below the search box. To limit the results to ebooks only, select the filter option “Full Text Online”.
