There is an APP for that

Hi !!

Do you realize you can get your overdrive books on your phone? Or your tablet? Just go to your app store and look for overdrive. Download the app; it is free. Then it is so easy for you to order & read books on your phone or tablet.

Downloadable Books

Hi,
Last month we had 4 new patrons access Overdrive for downloadable books. Altogether a total of 90 checkouts came just from patrons registered at this library. That doesn’t count the people who have cards from Crandall that live in our area.
This month we have added 8 new e-books to the collection.
Accused, The Common Lawyer and The Perk by Mark Gimenez.
Against the Fire, Against the Night by Kat Martin.
Redwood Bend by Robyn Carr.
Some Kind of Wonderful and Summer Secrets by Barbara Freethy.
All of these books can be taken out with several devices including a kindle. Hopefully as all libraries add more books to the collection, waiting times will shorten.

Do you know your library can’t buy eBooks from many publishers?

We can buy a printed book from these same publishers, stick it on the shelf, and lend it out—-but digital content is treated differently by the publishers and the companies who manage digital content licensing. Think that’s wrong? We do too!
We pay the same price and most times a bit higher for an eBook as compared to a hardcover. We lend them the same way–to one person at a time. If you have been on our eBook site, you can see the long wait lists. We desperately want to offer you these eBooks. But the companies won’t let us.

As your library, we commit to continuing advocacy for change in these policies. We need your help. You can write, call and/or email each publisher to register your opinion. For your convenience, the contact information is provided below. Thank you!

The following publishers currently refuse to sell or license eBooks to libraries:
