Can I just browse through an e-book without checking it out?

Answer: YES, butThe e-book collections allow about 5 – 10 minutes for browsing through the contents of a book. If you exceed the browsing time, you will be asked if you want to check the book out. It is easy to check-out an e-book: just follow the prompts. The prompts will also tell you how many days you will have access to the book, usually 3 – 7 days.
