In 2017, the BPAA partnered with the Alberta government to make Alberta-published eBooks available to readers across the province. The Read Alberta eBooks collection is continually enriched as titles are added on a regular basis.

The BPAA and its member publishers are grateful to Alberta Municipal Affairs’ Public Library Services Branch for this much-needed investment in our industry.Prairie Indigenous Ebook Collection logo

Launched in January 2019, this significant addition to the Alberta eBooks repository brings together over 200 titles from publishers in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. The first of its kind in Canada, the Prairie Indigenous collection increases access to stories by Indigenous authors, and writings about Indigenous culture.
