The Nine Percenters

Recently I stumbled upon an absolutely astonishing fact: out of all the people that have devices to read eBooks, only about 9% access library eBooks. The rest are paying for titles, largely through online retailers, such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

The 9% figure begs the question: are library customers just not aware that you can get free (yes, free!) eBooks from the library? Or is it the downloading of the eBooks that may seem daunting? Or something else?

We are here to help you use our digital collection. We have over 500 eBooks available to download to your Nook, iPad, or Kindle. If you need help getting started, please let us know and we will get you where you need to be.

Next Thursday on April 5th, we will be having an Introduction to eBooks class at the library. Bring your device and your laptop and we will show you to get library eBooks on your device.
