Here it is… You asked for more digital content and we heard you! As a patron of Gaylord Memorial Library, you have access to the Massachusetts Library System eBooks.
Click here to go to the Commonwealth eBook Collection Catalog where you can search for eBooks and more from our partners: Baker & Taylor (axis360), BiblioLabs (BiblioBoard), and EBL. Search for a book, check it out with your Gaylord Memorial Library card, download the materials, and you’re ready to go!
We suggest that patrons start with Baker & Taylor, Axis360, as it is currently the most user friendly program. If you have any difficulties, please make an appointment with Mission Possible Tech Help on Saturdays.

If the book that you want is from BiblioBoard, you must first create an account while connected to the Gaylord Memorial Library Guest Wifi to create an account under Gaylord Memorial Library’s online platform. Items can be viewed from anywhere.
If the book you want redirects you to EBL, you must first create an account while connected to the Gaylord Memorial Library Guest Wifi. Once you have created an account you will be able to use EBL resources from anywhere.
Once borrowed, the books will be added to your device for reading at your leisure. Books can be renewed through your personal account, but will disappear from your device after the due date.
