New Overdrive, Same Easy Service

Hello, Overdrive friends!

Today we transitioned from Sunflower eLibrary to our very own digital collection.

As an Overdrive user, we don’t want the changes to surprise you.

Here’s what’s up:

As of Tuesday, January 19, 2016, we’ve:

  • Switched from Sunflower eLibrary to our very own LPL digital collection
  • Service went live at 12:00 PM

Don’t worry! You’ll have:

  • The same checkouts, holds, and search ability
  • No learning curve
  • Downloaded titles stay on your device
  • Your original checkout period sticks

Important:

  • Almost all holds will transfer to the new website
  • Librarians will email you if we can’t acquire a title you had on hold with Sunflower eLibrary

Wait, I have a questions!

  • For technical questions about the app and downloads call 843-3833 ext. 211 or ext. 139
  • Set up a one-on-one appointment
  • Drop in for tech help every Tuesday from 5-6 PM in Meeting Room B

E-audiobooks

The State Library offers access to downloadable e-audiobooks through One Click Digital.  This is a fairly new service, so the number of titles available is still growing and software updates are ongoing. If you are new to OneClick, create your account here.  If you already a OneClick user, access your account here.

 

Audiobooks

Traditional audiobooks, stored on several CDS, are available in adult, teen, and children’s collections. To find these titles in our catalog, you can limit your search to Audiobk CD.

 

 

 

MP3 Audiobooks

MP3 audiobooks are available in our adult and teen collections. These look and sound like regular CDs, but the files are compressed – a title that traditionally fills 8 CDs will fit on one MP3. MP3s will play on any player marked as MP3 compatible, including CD and DVD players and computer  drives, as well as many newer car audio systems. MP3s can be transferred from the CD to a variety of portable media devices.
