  • ORL eBooks - Auto-checkout for held digital books is getting replaced by new options on March 2

    Do you use the ORL eBooks|OverDrive collection to enjoy digital books? OverDrive is changing how you check out requested books that become available to borrow so that you can better manage your holds! Currently, when requested digital books become available, they are automatically checked out to your account. On March 2, this will change for all new and existing holds. When your hold becomes available, you will be notified, and you will have a 3-day window when you can either borrow your book, redeliver it at a later date if you don't have time to read it, or cancel the hold if you no longer want the book.

  • Your access to eBooks is at risk

    Public Libraries are facing a battle with Macmillan Publishing to ensure access for all communities to eBook materials.
