Milton library joins Freading

The Milton Library has joined the Freading program, an electronic book service that increases its collection by thousands through digital downloads. Any Milton resident with a library card will soon be able to download books each week and it will cost the library only a fraction of what printed copies would have cost. “Freading is the only way to quickly give Milton library cardholders a selection of over 200,000 e-books,’’ library director Philip McNulty said. “While the number of books someone can read in any given week is limited, you can all be reading the same one.”
