Tulare County Library unveils a new eBook service with over 50,000 books as part of a one year grant through the state of California.
The Enki eLibrary was created by libraries for libraries and is named after the Enki, Sumerian God of mischief, intelligence and creativity. Developed by Califa, a non-profit library cooperative, and the Contra Costa County, it has thousands of popular eBooks, modern non-fiction, indie writers (independent authors), and unpublished works from bestselling authors. Now there is an eBook service that helps local and independent authors find an audience. Enki currently offers access to eBooks in PDF and EPUB formats from publishers including Kensington, Workman, McGraw-Hill, Smashwords, Akashic, Independent Publishers Group, F+W Media, Britannica and nearly fifty others.
Behind the scenes, Enki is transforming the eBook industry one library system at a time with a free, open-source eBook platform and discount access to a statewide collection of eBooks.
