At the Oliver Wolcott Library Free Just Got Better!

PRLog - Feb. 7, 2012 - LITCHFIELD, Conn. -- Free just got better with the addition of free downloads of eBooks available through the Oliver Wolcott Library (OWL) in Litchfield, Ct. Since 1862, OWL has been providing the community with books and then later, music CDs and DVDs, to borrow for free with a public library card. Now, OWL expands its free downloadable options that included audio books to cover eBooks! Bestsellers like Elizabeth the Queen by Sally Bedell Smith and Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich are all at your one-click fingertips!

“OWL is excited to reach out to eBook users with our new service that provides free downloads of bestselling eBooks to our patrons and friends. We currently have more than 2000 titles in circulation and we’re adding more all the time!” said Ann Marie White, Library Director for OWL.

White added, “This is in addition to the new print arrivals we receive every week. With more than 60,000 print books in our collection and now more than 2000 eBooks, we’ve got everyone covered whether they like reading digitally or with a hardcover book in their hand.”

Anyone with a valid Connecticut public library card has access to the free eBooks through the OWL website by accessing Overdrive, but, OWL cardholders get an extra benefit. Through a program called Overdrive Advantage, OWL cardholders have a shorter wait for popular titles and an increased access to selections.

“Our OWL eBooks are compatible with Kindle, Nook, Sony eReader, iPad, iPhone, Android, a PC, or Macintosh computer!” said Audra MacLaren, Adult Services Librarian at OWL, “And, if you’re new to using one of these devices and need help, we also provide a service called Book a Librarian where we provide a half hour one-on-one session on a basic technology subject like learning how to use your new eReader to download eBooks”.

And, yes, Book a Librarian is free too. Free did get a whole lot better at the Oliver Wolcott Library in Litchfield!
