Coweta libraries

Digital downloads available Monday

Best-selling and classic titles will be available to Coweta readers anytime, anywhere beginning Monday as the new digital download services begin.

The Coweta County Public Library System will expand its services with audiobooks, eBooks, music, and video, available to download free from the library’s website.

Through a new CCLS partnership with the OverDrive Company, Coweta County Library card holders will be able to check out and download digital media by visiting http://www.cowetapubliclibrary.org .

Users will be able to browse the library’s website, check out with a valid library card, and download to PC, Mac, and many mobile devices. Users will need to install free software. 

For audiobooks, music, and video, the software is OverDrive Media Console.

To read eBooks, users will need Adobe Digital Editions. Titles can be enjoyed immediately or transferred to a variety of devices, including iPod, Sony Reader, and many others. Some audio titles can also be burned to CD to listen on-the-go.

Titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period. There are no late fees.

“OverDrive is the leading full-service digital distributor of eBooks, audiobooks, music and video worldwide,” said Jimmy Bass, Coweta Library System director.

“By simply going to our website at www.cowetapubliclibrary.org and using their library card, our customers will have free, convenient access to over 1 million premium digital titles.”

Information sessions will be held throughout the summer to familiarize users with OverDrive.

For more information, contact your local CCLS location or visit the library system website at http://www.cowetapubliclibrary.org.
