Overdrive Challenge Update

I got 99 problems but a book ain’t one.  Here’s a little known fact about librarians: in our spare time we like to re-write the lyrics to popular rap songs and make them all about books.  We really do love books that much – especially new ones – and we know you do too, which is why we hope you’ll help us win the Overdrive Challenge.

What is the Overdrive Challenge?
If we can reach 8000 eBook/eAudiobook checkouts from our Overdrive collection by June 30th, Overdrive will reward us with a whole bunch of new books.  Right now we’re just shy of the 25% mark – a little more than 6000 checkouts to go.

How Can I Help?
It’s easy – all you have to do is borrow a book (or twenty!) from our Overdrive collection.  We’ve got something for everybody.  Fiction, Non-Fiction, Romance, Cooking, History, Biography, Crafting, Fantasy, Photography, Chick Lit, etc.; the list goes on and on.  There are 100 different topics to choose from.

There are also several YA titles in the collection, including some of these current heavy hitters:

DivergentEleanor & ParkThe Fault In Our Stars

Not Sure About eBooks?
We all love that warm and fuzzy feeling you get when you hold a book in your hands and flip through the pages.  We would never ask you to give that up…at least not completely. What we’re seeing a lot more of lately (which has been confirmed by our Goodreads members) is that people are going hybrid: print books at home, e-Books on the go.  Readers everywhere are loading up their smart phones and tablets with e-Books and e-Audiobooks because it is just so much easier than lugging around an extra ten pounds of literature.

Need Help?
That’s what we’re here for! Give us a call, visit a branch, or check out our App Cafe program.

We really encourage you to give our Overdrive collection a try! In no time at all you’ll be singing I like e-Books and I Cannot Lie…
