Free to Grafton library patrons with your library card number! 

Just sign in through Grafton Public Library (your account number is your 14-digit Grafton library card number) and read or listen in a browser online, or download to your device to read or listen offline. There are never any fines because they remove it from your account when it's due. Have you had your book for two weeks but you're not quite finished? - No problem! You may renew if nobody else is waiting for that book. Want a book but it's unavailable? Place a hold and they will email you when it's available for you.
