Open Library contains a database of over 20 million digitized books. Many can can be downloaded to your device. The eBooks are primarily written before 2000. Open Library welcomes donations of books to be digitized. Their goal is to have every book digitized eventually.
The Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records, in partnership with Arizona libraries, has a statewide ebook platform, Reading Arizona, which offers a curated collection of always available ebooks on Arizona topics and themes and features three types of content: contemporary ebooks acquired from publishers, content from self-published authors, and digitized out-of-copyright books and manuscripts. The project builds on a 2012 centennial project from Pima County Public Libraries mapping the literary landscape. Reading Arizona unites readers through our shared interest in Arizona herself.
Reading Arizona is brought to you by the Arizona State Library, with funding through a Library Services and Technology Act grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
