If you’re not one of those people who needs to smell the papyrus when reading, you might be interested in knowing there’s starting to be quite a nice selection of digital gardening books available for FREE from your local library. OverDrive is the mover and shaker in the business these days, with some competition from the 3M Cloud Library. While OverDrive and 3M are the e-book vendors, your library is the provider.
