The New Brunswick Public Library Service plans to buy $100,000 worth of new e-books and downloadable audio books, thanks to a donation from the New Brunswick Public Libraries Foundation.

The donation will add about 4,000 new titles to the electronic library’s virtual collection, just in time for Christmas when some New Brunswickers may discover e-readers or other mobile devices under the tree, officials said.
