Books & More

The library offers books in all formats... but so much more! We have things to listen to, watch, practice, interact with, learn, connect to, and experience. Download an ebook, listen to a digital audiobook, watch an Oscar-nominated movie online, learn a new language or skill, research a topic or person, join a discussion group, get free tickets to local cultural sites, or immerse yourself in Lake Oswego history. It can all be done with your library card!

E-books & Streaming
