Read an E-Book Week: Learning Express Library

While NetLibrary and OverDrive are the major providers of ebooks to the Troy Public Library, several of the eResources we subscribe to also have ebooks. For the rest of the week, we will take a look at some of these less obvious places to find ebooks.

Learning Express Library is an eResource that provides practice tests for several different academic subjects, standardized tests like the ACT and SAT, and careers. It also includes courses that cover a variety of topics such as math and reading skills improvement, job searching, interviewing, and more.

While mainly focused on practice tests for various exams, Learning Express Library also features a sizable ebook collection. All ebooks from Learning Express Library are in the Adobe PDF format. They can be viewed inside your browser with Adobe Reader. They can also be easily saved to your computer for access anytime.

Learning Express Library ebooks reflect topics that are covered by the practice tests and courses they provide. You will find ebooks on such topics as academic test preparation, math skills, and job searching skills. While the initial Learning Express Library ebook page displays all of the ebooks that are available, there is some limited search capability to help you find what you are looking for. You can search by subject, title, or author. There is no advanced search.

To access Learning Express Library, you will need a valid Troy Library card. To get started, go to, and then click on the eResources link. Select Education, and then click on Learning Express Library. Create an account
