What’s hot to the touch, sizzling even, but doesn’t smell like the hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill that permeates the air this time of year? E-books and e-audiobooks from the library of course.

Even before the shutdown of the library due to the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, e-books and e-audiobooks have been one of our greatest expanding mediums for the library in terms of collection buying and usage. The coronavirus shutdown, when the physical library was closed for a little over three months, sent that trend into overdrive.

Brandt Ensor is the assistant director of the Adams County Library System.
