eGO CT - Statewide eBooks and eAudiobooks

The Connecticut State Library has been rolling out a library statewide ebook platform called eGO CT to public libraries across Connecticut.  Access is provided through the Palace Project App.  Ebooks available through the app are provided by both the Connecticut State Library and your public library for personal use.  Download the app onto your mobile device and select your public library to start browsing the collections available to you.  You will need your public library card to borrow materials and download them onto your device.
