The Logan County Libraries announce that its patrons can access The Ohio Digital Library that contains a collection of approximately 129,000 items.
The Ohio eBook Project and the SEO Library Center have combined collections to form The Ohio Digital Library, http://ohioebooks.org. Library cardholders can borrow popular digital media such as eBooks and audiobooks for free anytime, and titles automatically expire, so there are no late fees.
“Now you can search all the eBooks at once. And best of all, checkout is for a maximum of 21 days for any of them,” Logan County Libraries reference assistant Becky Hatton said.
“If you have been using the two sites, you won’t notice a big change in how you search for and download eBooks.”
Ms. Hatton said for patrons who are new to the system, one-on-one training sessions are available at the library.
To get started, visit www.logancountylibraries.org and click on the “download OverDrive” button, and then “The Ohio Digital Library.” A guided tour, quick start guides and YouTube videos are also available.
Patrons can browse the digital collection, borrow titles with a valid library card, and utilize the service on all major computers and devices, including iPhone, iPad, Nook, Android phones and tablets, and Kindle. eBooks can be read immediately on any device with an Internet browser via OverDrive Read.
A total of 12 holds are allowed at a time, and 10 items can be checked out at a time.
Contact the library at 599-4189 for more information.
