About Our Collection
eLS offers ebooks and audiobooks on our OverDrive and Sora platforms, as well as select print materials in our library at the LACOE Ed Center. You check out ebooks and eaudiobooks just like physical library books: the loan period is 21 days, and they return automatically. Holds can be placed on unavailable items and checked out when they become available. You can also download your content for offline use, or in many cases, stream it or send it to your Kindle or Kindle app.
