Pulp-less Fiction: Digital Downloads

This blog is about new paperless reading materials like downloadable audio books, ebooks, and online magazines, made available to you through the Appleton Public Library.

We want to keep on top of the trends and bring you information and entertainment in a way that fits your life today.   -Beth
