Answer

An ebook or electronic book is a digital copy of a physical book.  Ebooks are read on computers or mobile devices.  Some publishers/vendors allow the ebook to be downloaded onto your device (like Amazon) and others only allow the 'book' to be viewed from the vendors site.  The KCKCC Library currently has over 50,000 ebooks but they cannot be downloaded to your personal computer or mobile device but must be read 'live' from the computer.  Printing the ebooks depends on each publisher as to what they will allow.
