Hubbard Public Library has expanded its services to include eBooks, audiobooks, digital music, and digital video. The library’s new digital media content is available to download at anytime from the library’s website through the Ohio eBook Project. Library card holders can check out and download digital media by visiting www.beyondbooks.org. This new service is free for Hubbard Library patrons with their library card. Patrons browse the Ohio eBook Project’s website, check out materials with a valid library card, and then download content to a PC, Mac®, or other mobile devices. Titles can be enjoyed immediately or transferred to a variety of devices, including iPod®, NOOK™, Sony® Reader™, and many others, for on-the-go listening and reading. Titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period so there are no late fees! Visit the reference desk at the Library to find out if your eReader or mp3 player is
compatible with OverDrive Media.
Learn how to download ebooks, audiobooks, digital music and digital video with OverDrive Media by attending a class at the library. Class size is limited, so advance registration is required. There is no fee, but a flash-drive is recommended to save information. Flash-drives are available for purchase from The Friends of the Hubbard Public Library at the reference desk. Call the Library at 330-534-3512, Ext. 3 to register for a class. There are several sessions scheduled in the coming weeks. To see a list of class times and dates or to get started downloading audiobooks, eBooks, and more, visit www.beyond-books.org.
The Ohio eBook Project is a state-wide consortium that provides a shared collection of downloadable eBooks, audiobooks, music and video to member libraries across Ohio. Member libraries, including Hubbard Public Library, purchase content that is shared collectively to all participating libraries. Established in 2005, the Ohio eBook Project is funded in part by LSTA funds awarded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services to the State Library of Ohio.
