Hamilton East Public Library challenges readers to try digital
The Times


Hamilton East Public Library is on a mission: Get more people to try digital reading.

While it has offered eBooks and digital audiobooks to the community through its partnership with OverDrive for 9 years, it knows many people are still surprised to learn their library card gives them access to more than 14,000 free digital titles.

Throughout the rest of this year, the library is participating in OverDrive's "Digital Dash" contest. If it hits 173,052 digital checkouts by the end of the year, it will be eligible to win additional funds to buy more eBooks and audiobooks for its OverDrive collection.

"Audiobooks are rising in popularity. With the increase in usage of services like Audible, we want to let people know that we have digital audiobooks available to borrow at no cost," said Molly Mrozowksi, Collection Services manager.

The library's digital books are free for anyone with a valid library card. Current popular titles include Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate, Origin by Dan Brown and The Rooster Bar by John Grisham. Users can borrow bestsellers and classic eBooks and digital audiobooks to enjoy on smart phones, tablets, Kindles and other eReaders, MP3 players, and computers. There are never late fees with digital titles, as they return automatically at the end of the lending period.

Readers can access the library's digital collection 24/7 by visiting hepl.overdrive.com or by downloading the Libby app from their device's app store.
