If you have any YA or Kid/Teen experience, you might want to join the DPLA Ebook Collection Curation Corps to find free ebooks for DPLA and develop good metadata for your selections.  Sounds fun to me!!

"Data connectivity is intrinsic to most of our daily lives. The place which exists in almost every community large or small, rural or urban, is the public library. Ben Lee argues that not only do libraries provide free access to data, but they do so in an environment which is trustworthy and neutral, geared to learning. Access to digital technology increasingly overlaps with access to opportunity and it is important to recognise the role public libraries already play (and have always played) in keeping the gate to knowledge open. "  Yup.

This is fantastic!  Congratulations to the brave souls that are willing to give it a try!  A much needed service for "unbanked patrons"!
