Larger Checkout & Hold Limits on OverDrive's Media on Demand

Do you read a lot of eBooks?  Have you ever thought that OverDrive's limit of five checkouts and five holds just wasn't enough?

Well, now you can double your reading because OverDrive has doubled their limits.  You can now have up to 10 items checked out at a time and up to 10 items on hold at a time.

New: New Materials Pages & Widget

In addition to our new logo, you will notice that we also upgraded our New Materials widget on the main page of our website last week.  

The New Materials widget now features only Adult Fiction, but now includes tab links to four new New Materials pages for Adult, Teen, Kid, and AV (audiovisual), so that you can see all the new items arriving at the Library rather than just a sample.  

We also added a tab link to our Staff Reads page, so you can see what we are reading, watching, or listening to each month, as well as some of our favorites.
