Announcements: Your access to ebooks is in jeopardy!

Beginning November 1, Macmillan Publishers will restrict public libraries – regardless of size or population served – to the purchase of only one single copy of a new eBook title following its release. Because the Northern Tier Library purchases eBooks in conjunction with the rest of Allegheny County libraries, that will mean only one copy of a current bestseller for everyone in the county. In addition, the publisher will impose an eight-week embargo before selling additional copies to public libraries. This means much longer wait times for eBooks from authors such as Jonathan Franzen, Louise Penny, Nora Roberts and many more.

Sign the petition today at or text EBOOKS to 40649 and demand that Macmillan treat public libraries as collaborators rather than competitors.
