Library offers e-books, audio books Featured

Written by 

Humboldt County Library, EurekaThe Humboldt County Library has expanded its services by providing downloadable e-books and audiobooks through Overdrive: Library To Go. Library cardholders can check out and download digital media anytime, anywhere by going to the Library website at www.humlib.org and clicking on eBooks or by going directly to downloads.northnetlibs.org
The Humboldt County Library, in partnership with other Northern California public libraries, shares the Overdrive: Library To Gowebsite to provide a varied selection of digital resources accessible with a public library card. Thousands of titles are available for checkout to all member libraries but once logged into this site with a Humboldt County Library card number, patrons are provided with an additional selection of e-books available only to Humboldt County residents.

"I have been an advocate for digital resource sharing among our library consortium for many years and it was finally made possible through collaboration and an agreement to share the costs among the membership" said Library Director Victor Zazueta. "The greatest thing about Overdrive is that it is available 24/7 and suitable for today's mobile devices."

The Humboldt County Library has many other free programs, databases and services available. For more information regarding Overdrive or other Library services please visit the website at www.humlib.org or contact the Reference Desk at 707-269-1905.
