Enjoy easy browsing of eBooks and e-audiobooks available for checkout with QPL’s new Overdrive Media Stations, available in two locations.
The stations are available inside the County Market café at 48th and Broadway, with 24-hour access; and in the lobby at Quincy Public Library, during library hours.
“These touch-screen media stations simplify the process of browsing and checking out digital books and audiobooks,” said Nancy Dolan, Quincy Public Library’s Executive Director. “We are excited to partner with County Market to bring the convenience of digital library service to our community on the east side of Quincy.”
The Overdrive Media Station is a touch screen kiosk that allows patrons to easily browse and sample eBooks and e -audiobooks. A chosen title can be sent to a favorite personal device for check out, via QR code, email, or SMS. No need to worry about late fees on digital items borrowed – all titles are automatically returned at the end of the borrowing period. A Quincy Public Library card is required to borrow digital material.
Library visitors can browse:
- The top 100 most popular library titles
- Titles recently added to QPL’s collection
- Children’s and teens titles
- Collections of titles by subject (such as history or science fiction)
- Specific items by title, using the on-screen keyboard, and then filtering by format.
In addition to visiting the Overdrive Media Stations, digital titles are available anytime, anywhere by visiting http://quincylibrary.org/downloadables/. Users may browse; borrow; and read or listen to titles on all major computers and devices, including iPhone, iPad, Nook, Android phones and tables and Kindle.
