Canada: New Brunswick Public Libraries Get $100K For Electronic Books

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.


The Electronic Library New Brunswick was created in 2010. The latest titles will bring the total collection to more than 13,000.

The Electronic Library of New Brunswick is powered by OverDrive.
