National Emergency Library

The Internet Archive has suspended waitlists for the 1.4 million (and growing) books in its lending library by creating a National Emergency Library. This suspension will run through June 30, 2020, or the end of the US national emergency, whichever is later. For more information, see the Internet Archive’s announcement.
