Effective November 1, 2019, Macmillan Publishers limits sale of newly released eBooks to libraries. Public libraries of any size (including our consortium The Library Network) can only buy one copy of a newly released eBook during the first 8 weeks after publication.
Beginning November 1, 2019, The Library Network and many libraries in the co-op, including Livonia Public Library, will not buy new release eBooks from Macmillan Publishers.
We will continue to buy Macmillan titles that are not limited by the purchasing policy. This includes print materials, audiobooks* and older copies of best-selling eBooks.
*Downloadable audiobooks are not limited by this policy.
