eRead Illinois is a statewide program designed to increase access to eBooks and audiobooks for Illinois residents. Through eRead Illinois, Hodgkins’ patrons are able to access eBooks and audiobooks on a number of devices including iPads, iPhones, Kindle Fires, Android, Windows, Nooks, Sony Readers and more.

Directions: Once you’re on the eRead website, visit the Magic Wall to search for a title you’d like to check out. You can limit your search to eBooks, audiobooks and/or “Available Now” by selecting an icon to the left of the top row of book covers. Before you check out an item, you will need to select your preferred format and you'll need to enter your library card number (no spaces). To learn about how to check out items on a particular device, visit the App Zone. Find the link to the App Zone right next to the Magic Wall tab at the top of the page. Need help? Call the library at (708) 579-1844.
