OverDrive, the company we get our digital books from, has looked at a research study of how few people know their library has eBooks and has posed a challenge to help promote digital literacy.
During the month of June our goal is to increase the number of items we checked out through NIDL (Northeast Indiana Digital Library) at least 25% more than our best month on record.
We accept that challenge, but we can’t do it alone. We need your help. Each library in our NIDL consortium is aiming to meet their own goal overall and the goal for Eckhart Public Library is to get 911 items checked out.
Between the number of items you can have checked out being raised to 6 at a time and digital items still counting for the Summer Reading Club here at the library I know we can meet this goal.
Want to try the downloadable items but not sure where to start? The help section on our digital page has some great information and the Eckhart Public Library has free Technology Tutoring.
