Downloadable eBook Service Now Available
Daniel Boone Regional Library has added more than 700 popular fiction and nonfiction eBook titles for all ages to its collection. Library patrons can check out up to seven eBooks at a time and keep them for seven, 14 or 21 days.
It only takes a few minutes to download an eBook to your Windows or Mac computer. Read your pick on your computer or transfer it to any number of compatible e-readers on the market including Barnes and Noble’s Nook, the Apple iPad, Sony Readers, the Literati, the Kobo and the Pandigital Novel. (Due to its use of a proprietary format, the Amazon Kindle does not work with the library’s new eBook service.) If you have an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Android device, you can download an app that allows quick access to the eBook collection.
“Our eBook service is a nice compliment to our library’s current collection. For many people, using an electronic reader is more convenient for a variety of reasons. We want to make library materials as accessible as we can to everyone, and this is another avenue through which to do that,” said Doyne McKenzie, Collections Manager at Daniel Boone Regional Library.

People can test drive a variety of e-readers that are compatible with the library’s eBook service during a drop-in training session January 18 anytime between 6:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. at the Columbia Public Library.
