New e-books, downloadable audiobooks, and an updated Overdrive Help page

The library’s catalog of e-books and downloadable audiobooks just got another infusion. (Does anyone notice a pattern? It’s not a complicated pattern like Fibonacci numbers, it’s more of a “we keep adding more books” pattern). Some of the newest titles include novels by J.D. Robb, Lee Child, John Grisham, Deborah Harkness, and Karen Russell. And there’s nonfiction as well, of course, from none other than Madeleine Albright and Michael Pollan, who most likely have never been in a sentence together before. Check it out – there’s something for everyone.

While you’re there, you might also notice that the OverDrive Help page has a new look. You still access it the same way, by clicking on the question mark in the upper right corner of the page:

Overdrive_help

 

Then choose “OverDrive Help” from the menu:

Overdrive_help2

 

Et voila, a whole new design:

overdrive_help_new

 

It’s still just as help-ful as the old site, and maybe even more so. Just yesterday, I found out that it’s possible to put just part of an audiobook on your device by choosing specific files. That made one audiobook-listening Android-phone-user very happy!

So, readers and listeners, check out the new books in our digital media catalog, and if you hit a snag, search the Help page. Of course, if you can’t find the answer there, give us a call, e-mail, or an in-person visit at the reference desk and we’ll be happy to help. O brave new world, that has such devices in’t!*

*Apologies to Shakespeare (but I suspect Aldous Huxley would approve).
