Download Your New Favorite: The Big Library Read and More!
Are you an eBook fan? Do you want to join a book group, but have a hard time with scheduling, or dislike large groups? Have you considered a eBook club? OverDrive, one of our providers of digital media, sponsors a global eBook club called Big Library Read, with participation completely online. Goodreads also has eBook groups, or you could start your own - borrowing eBooks from hoopla, another of our providers, ensures that there will be no wait list.
If you haven't yet checked out our digital collection, maybe it's time to give it a whirl! Besides OverDrive, the library catalog also features eBooks, eAudiobooks, magazines, and more from OneClickdigital (eAudio only), authoritative information from ebrary, Bibliotheca's cloudLibrary, hoopla (eBooks, and also eAudio, movies, television, music, and comics), streaming music from Freegal, and Zinio for downloadable magazines. Each works a little differently, so be sure to check out our handy Digital Media About & Help Guide for more information, and the library does offer in-person assistance at Gizmo Garages at many branches. We know many people still prefer print books - but in a pinch, a digital download could save the day!
If you are looking to attend a book club or for other reading recommendations, look no further than our Books and Literature guide to access a list of book clubs by branch, printable booklists, bestseller lists, and more, and also considering checking out our email newsletter service!
