The Internet Archive, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is building a digital library with free access to all users. Digitizing texts began in 2005 and today they scan 4,000 books per day in 18 locations around the world. Texts published prior to 1927 are available for download, and hundreds of thousands of modern books can be borrowed through their Open Library site. One of the Internet Archive's missions is to serve people who have difficulty interacting with physical books.
