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 301,924 checkouts and 92.7% to that goal!
