Summer Reading and Online E-books at The Library of Congress

The Library of Congress is a great place to visit for kids, teens, parents and educators to find out more about free books to read and read them right in your browser. If your browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, etc.) asks you to download Javascript, go ahead and click "yes".

The Arabian Nights is just one of many books you will be able to read that is out of copyright. This is exciting stuff! Kids who don't have a device, but do have a desktop computer or laptop can read e-books right from their chair and turn the virtual pages! These books are beautiful, full of illustrations of the kind that you would not be able to afford, but can view online.

Maybe your child just wants to read non-fiction. He/she can find it here and browse African American History or Architecture and all the way up to the Zs!

Images of baseball cards, cartoons the Civil War, and the Dust Bowl are just waiting for your child to go check them out. The Library of Congress is an incredible spot to browse, read, and find out more this summer about the world right from your desktop.
