Very exciting news that eBooks are now available from the Sno-Isle Web site through OverDrive. EBooks are books that you can download to your pc or mac and then transfer to some brands of readers, phones, etc. Of course I had to try it out right away! I don't own a reader, but I tried it out on my laptop and I really liked it. I thought I wouldn't like reading from a screen, but it was OK, and I can see there are definitely times when I will use this service. For example: even though I work in a library sometimes I actually run out of books to read, or the books I have aren't what I am the mood to read at the time. Also traveling - planning how many books I will need to bring is always a hassle...I don't want to pack too many, but I don't want to run out. Then there are those appointments that I drive my Dad to every week with nearby free WIFI that I take advantage of, now I can check out an eBook, when I forget to bring a book along.
It's easy to use with just your library card, the Sno-Isle Web site, and a pc or mac, and in just a few clicks you can download and start reading!
I was able to check out Mitch Albom's "Have a Little Faith" as an eBook. I was planning to get in the hold queue after hearing good things about it and I was suprised to find it available for check out as an eBook.
