Southern Illinois Libraries on the Go

It’s the digital age with smart phones, iPads and eReaders. If you’re one of those people who couldn’t live without being connected 24/7, you may be interested to know that digital downloads via OverDrive, Inc., is now available at the New Athens Public Library.

Any New Athens Public Library cardholder in good standing may check out a book with the option of keeping it for one or two weeks, after which point the title automatically disappears from your download library, saving users from time-consuming returns.

OverDrive is very versatile, not only is the company’s program compatible with a wide variety of devices ranging from the Barnes and Noble Nook to the Apple iPad to the Blackberry, but it also offers music and video, as well as eBooks and audiobooks. A full list of devices is available on the Southern Illinois Libraries on the Go website.

Go to the New Athens Public Library website http://www.newathens.lib.il.us/ and click on the icon for OverDrive. This will take you to Southern Illinois Libraries on the Go. Read the Quick Start Guide or take the Digital Media Guided Tour. All the information you’ll need to get started is there. If you need additional information, the public library staff will be happy to help you.

We’re excited and we hope you will be too!
