Digital Dash – Checkout Challenge
The CLAMS Library Network is on a mission: Get more people to try digital reading!
While we have offered eBooks and eAudiobooks to the community through our partnership with OverDrive for 8 years, we know that many people are still surprised to learn their library card gives them access to thousands of FREE digital titles.
Throughout the rest of this year, the CLAMS Library Network is participating in OverDrive’s “Digital Dash” checkout challenge.
Our 2017 total checkout goal for OverDrive is: 325,572
Right now, we’re 79% to that goal.
We’re currently at 285,070 checkouts and 87.5% to that goal!
UPDATE: As of 4:30PM 12/7/2017
The app is back online.
Our mobile app is temporarily out of service. We apologize for any inconvenience. We are currently working with our app developer, Boopsie, to get our app back up and running.

Banned Books Week is celebrated every year. According to the American Library Association, “Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information. Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers — in shared support of the freedom to seek and express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.”
