STRATFORD LIBRARY’S DIGITAL COLLECTION AVAILABLE 24/7
The Stratford Library is happy to offer best-selling and classic eBooks, audiobooks, music and video to its patrons available 24/7 from the Library’s digital collection, [http://tratford.lib.overdrive.com].
In addition to titles that are available for users to borrow or join a wait list, the Library is providing visitors additional titles to discover, sample and recommend to the Library. Via the “Recommend to Library” links, users can also suggest titles they’d like to see added to the catalog, giving the Library a new method of patron-driven acquisition.
Users may browse the Library’s website, borrow titles with a valid library card and enjoy them on all major computers and devices including iPhone®, iPad®, Android™ phones and tablets and Kindle®. EBooks can be read immediately on any device with an internet browser and all titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period. There are no late fees.
For the month of June, the Stratford Library is participating in the Overdrive Challenge. To raise awareness of library eBook lending, Overdrive is awarding prizes to libraries that increase their digital circulation by 25% or 50% during the month of June. The Stratford Library could win as much as $2500 in content credit toward building their ebook collection.
Patrons are urged to take advantage of this valuable new service while helping their town library in the process. Additional assistance can found by calling the Adult Services Department (203.385.4164) or attending Technology Sandbox classes at the Library. The upcoming schedule includes June 24 from 10 am-noon and July 15 from 2-4 pm.
