Digital books & audios
The Maine Infonet Download Library is a shared service of over 200 Maine libraries, including Windham Public Library. Thousands of eBooks and eAudios are available for free to any library card holder who has an active account in good standing and who is a member of one of the participating Maine libraries. While we are members of the MaineInfonet Download Library, Windham Public Library also maintains a separate cloudLibrary. Windham’s digital items can be borrowed by members of other libraries, but only Windham Public Library patrons can place holds and therefore have greater access to these items. New titles from both collections will be highlighted on the “Windham New Purchases” and “MaineInfonet Consortium New Purchases” shelves of the Featured page of the cloudLibrary so patrons can place holds on (or flag) new items that they want to check out.
Digital comics and graphic novels
Comics Plus brings unlimited access to thousands of digital graphic novels and comics to library patrons on any Web-connected device. The downloads are available for free to all Windham Public Library card holders with an active, 14-digit account in good standing. Click here for our instructional handout.

If you need a hand with the any of our download services or your electronic device in general, our Reference & Technology Librarian and Reference & Technology Assistant can schedule time to sit down with you one-on-one (as time permits).

The Windham Public Library has 4 eReaders in the collection which are available for our patrons to borrow. Our two Kindle Paperwhite devices and two Nook devices come pre-loaded with a variety of titles. No downloading is needed! The Paperwhites have juvenile selections and the Nooks have teen and adult offerings, but patrons of all ages are welcome to check out either. Each device circulates for 3 weeks using a Windham Public Library card. Reserve yours today, or check with a Circulation Desk if you are interested in borrowing a device.
