eBooks, Audiobooks, and More

Commonwealth eBook Collections (CEC) is a statewide partnership that provides access to Axis 360 (popular ebooks and audiobooks), Biblioboard (primary sources, historical documents, images, video, and more), and Ebook Central (academic research and DIY books).

Please note: CEC is undergoing a transition from current content providers to OverDrive. As of July 1, 2018, Axis 360, Biblioboard, and Ebook Central will no longer be available to Watertown patrons. Please contact the library for more information.
