The Orland Free Library is on a mission: Get more people to try digital reading! While we have offered eBooks, and digital audiobooks to the community through our NorthNet Library Consortium partnership with OverDrive for years, we know that many people are still surprised to learn their library card gives them access to over 8,000 free digital titles.
Throughout the rest of this year, the library is participating in OverDrive’s “Digital Dash” contest. If we hit 336,454 digital checkouts by the end of the year, we will be eligible to win additional funds to buy more eBooks and audiobooks for our OverDrive collection.
The library’s digital books are free for anyone with a library card. Users can borrow bestsellers and classic eBooks and digital audiobooks to enjoy on smart phones, tablets, Kindles and other eReaders, MP3 players, and computers. A variety of juvenile and young adult titles are also available. 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 https://northnet.overdrive.com/
