eBook Embargo

Due to restrictions by Macmillan, the publisher of authors like Nora Roberts, J.D. Robb, Louise Penny, and Nnedi Okorafor, library eBook availability has changed effective November 1, 2019. St. Louis County Library will only be allowed to purchase one eBook copy of all new Macmillan books. Additional copies will not be made available to SLCL for purchase until eight weeks after the publication date. This change might affect your eBook hold time. For more information about Macmillan’s embargo, visit the American Library Association's eBooksforall website.
