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!
The network’s digital books are free for anyone with a valid library card. Users can borrow bestsellers and classic eBooks and eAudiobooks to enjoy on smart phones, tablets, Kindles and other eReaders, MP3 players, and computers. We also offers a dedicated space for younger readers, with a variety of juvenile and young adult titles. There are never late fees with digital titles, as they return automatically at the end of the lending period.
Readers can access the library’s digital collection 24/7 by visiting https://clamsnet.overdrive.com/ or by downloading the Libby app from their device’s app store.
OverDrive is the leading digital reading platform for libraries and schools. We are dedicated to “a world enlightened by reading” by delivering the industry’s largest catalog of eBooks, audiobooks and other digital media to a growing network of 36,000 libraries and schools in 63 countries worldwide.
