Watauga County Public Library Challenges Readers to Try Digital

Boone, NC —Watauga County Public Library (a member of Appalachian Regional Library) is on a mission: Get more people to try digital reading! While they have offered eBooks, digital audiobooks, and streaming video to the community through their partnership with OverDrive for 6 years, they know that many people are still surprised to learn their library card has given them potential access to over 2,000 free titles, during those years.

Throughout the rest of this year, the library is participating in OverDrive’s “Digital Dash” contest. If they hit 11,523 digital checkouts by the end of the year, they will be eligible to win additional funds to buy more eBooks and audiobooks for their OverDrive collection.

“We would love to expand our digital titles and cut down on hold times by buying more copies of our most popular titles,” said Monica Caruso, County Librarian.

Ross Cooper says, “Audiobooks are rising in popularity. With the increase in usage of services like Audible, we want to let people know that we have digital audiobooks available to borrow at no cost.”

The library’s digital books are free for anyone with a valid library card. Current popular titles include “The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett,” “Captive Star,” “The Astronaut Wives Club,” “Cracked, Not Broken,” and “Hillbilly Elegy.” Users can borrow bestsellers and classic eBooks and digital audiobooks to enjoy on smart phones, tablets, Kindles and other eReaders, MP3 players, and computers. Watauga County Public Library also offers a dedicated space for younger readers, with a variety of juvenile and young adult titles. There are never late fees with digital titles, as they return automatically at the end of the lending period.

Readers can access the library’s digital collection 24/7 by visiting arlibrary.overdrive.com or by downloading the Libby app from their device’s app store.
