New Kids and Teen OverDrive websites

Introduce your kids and teens to East Central Regional Library’s Kids and Teen Collections of digital titles!

East Central Regional Library has expanded its services with new digital library experiences just for kids and teens. The main digital collection, which can be accessed by the East Central Regional Library collection in the OverDrive app or by visiting http:/ecrl.overdrive.com, now offers a way to provide safe and easy browsing experiences just for kids and teens.

The Kids collection filters the digital site to only show Children’s content, and the Teen collection filters the digital site to only show Young Adult content.  This filtering gets kids and teens to the titles they want faster!  These appealing and user-friendly collections contain eBooks and eAudiobooks, including popular titles such as Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney.

Kids and teens need a safe environment to browse the library. Just as children and teens have their own sections of the physical branch libraries, now they too have their own section of the ECRL Digital Library!

These new age-friendly digital spaces are free to use with an ECRL library card and password. Digital titles are available anytime, anywhere and expire automatically, with no late fees.
