Southwest Michigan Digital Library



The Southwest Michigan Digital Library is a cooperative of  32 area libraries who are sharing our digital resources.    Members of participating libraries have access to downloadable ebooks, audiobooks, music and video.   Books and Music can be read/listened to on your smart phone, ereader, mp3 player, or personal computer.    You can download the Libby app to your device and take your reading on the go.


If you have a request for an ebook you would like the cooperative to purchase,  here is a link to the Overdrive Purchase Request Form
