Many public libraries and bookstores include a section devoted to Spanish books. Although the availability of printed Spanish books depends on the demand in the area, digital libraries and online booksellers provide easy access to both original Spanish works and translations.
The availability and selection of printed Spanish books in bookstores and libraries varies based on demand in the area. However, public libraries often provide ebook-lending services as well. Overdrive is a company that has partnered with over 30,000 public libraries, and anyone with a library card for one of its partner libraries can enter the necessary information and borrow ebooks on an Internet-connected device. Overdrive's collection includes over 10,000 fiction titles in Spanish. As with regular library services, Overdrive does not charge a membership fee for individuals.
For those who prefer buying books, companies such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble carry print and digital books in Spanish. Their online search filters allow customers to view books available in a specific language such as Spanish. Ebooks and audiobooks can be downloaded and enjoyed immediately, but these are only available with an original account. Physical editions of books can take a while to arrive, but these are easier to share than ebooks.
