National Emergency Library

National Emergency Library

Available through June 15, 2020

The Internet Archive has created a National Emergency Library by temporarily suspending waitlists for the 1.4 million ebooks in their lending library. Primarily published during the 20th century; the majority do not have a commercially available ebook. In addition to the National Emergency Library, the Internet Archive also offers free public access to 2.5 million fully downloadable public domain books, which do not require waitlists to view.
