EBOOKS FROM MACMILLAN PUBLISHERS

Macmillan Publishing Company is limiting the number of eBook copies purchased by a library to one copy in the first 8 weeks after publication.

Macmillan publishes many bestselling and popular authors, so customers may experience growing holds lists and/or longer wait times. Imprints within the Macmillan Publishing family include Farrar, Straus and Giroux, Henry Holt & Co., First Second, Flatiron Books, and Tor/Forge, among others.

The Library District will purchase more eBook copies of high-demand new titles from Macmillan Publishers for our OverDrive collection when they are made available.
