East Central Regional Library Challenges Readers to Try Digital

East Central Regional Library is on a mission: Get more people to try digital reading!

While we have offered eBooks and eAudiobooks to the community for 6 years, we know that many people are still surprised to learn their library card gives them access to over 11,000 free digital titles. 

Throughout the rest of this year, the library is participating in OverDrive’s “Digital Dash” contest.  If we hit 90,524 digital checkouts by the end of the year, we will be eligible to win additional funds to buy more eBooks and eAudiobooks for our OverDrive collection.  



eAudiobooks are especially rising in popularity. East Central Regional Library’s eAudiobook usage is seeing a 45% increase over last year. We want even more people to know that we have eAudiobooks and eBooks available to borrow at no cost for anyone with an East Central Regional Library card.

Current popular titles include ECRL Reads selection Ice-Out by Mary Casanova, Escape Clause by John Sandford, and Night School by Lee Child. Users can borrow bestsellers and classic eBooks and eAudiobooks to enjoy on smart phones, tablets, Kindles and other eReaders, MP3 players, and computers. East Central Regional Library also offers dedicated spaces for younger readers, with a variety of children and teen titles. There are never late fees with digital titles, as they return automatically at the end of the lending period.

Access the library’s digital collection 24/7 by visiting https://ecrl.overdrive.com or by downloading the Libby app from your device’s app store.
