Rochester Hills Public Library Offers New Service to Reduce Wait Time for E-Books
(ROCHESTER HILLS- Aug. 15, 2018) Rochester Hills Public Library patrons will see shorter wait times for popular e-books, thanks to the addition of cloudLibrary.
RHPL is among the first in the state to adopt cloudLibrary, a shared digital library with over 100,000 copies of eBooks and eAudiobooks.
“Before cloudLibrary, e-book readers sometimes had to wait weeks for popular titles like Little Fires Everywhere on Overdrive, but with cloudLibrary expanding our digital collection items should be available with a significantly shorter wait if any at all,” said Adult Services Manager Jessica Parij.
All of the material is easily accessible via the cloudLibrary app. The app, available on Apple iTunes, Google Play and Kindle Fire, allows patrons to discover new materials, and includes a handy search feature which helps locate specific authors or titles.
“The statistics have shown that patrons want more e-materials, and our Adult Services Manager Jessica Parij has been diligent in coming up with cost effective resources that will grow our digital collection,” said Library Director Christine Lind Hage.
Offered at no cost to library patrons, getting started with cloudLibrary only requires an active library card. For more information on how to access cloudLibrary visit rhpl.org or call 248-656-7195.
