LeClaire Community Library
Welcome to the
Important Announcement Regarding Upcoming Changes for LeClaire Community Library's eBooks and eAudiobooks
In an effort to enhance our existing services in providing eBook content to our patrons, LeClaire Community Library, along with the rest of the libraries in our RiverShare consortium, have elected to form their own eBook consortium called RiverShare OverDrive.
This transition from our previous eBook consortium, WILBOR OverDrive, to RiverShare OverDrive will provide a larger collection of titles to choose from, less wait time for holds on popular titles, and easier account management for library users. For now, patrons will be able to access eBooks through a separate RiverShare Overdrive website. The overall look of the new site will be very similar to the old WILBOR site, so patrons will feel comfortable exploring the new eBook platform.
However, in the near future, patrons will be able to access eBooks and eAudiobooks through the regular online library catalog and the eBooks checked out under their card will be visible in their online account—just like they are able to manage physical items checked out from the library. More information about that upcoming transition will be coming soon.
LeClaire's WILBOR Overdrive account will still be available to our patrons until September 30th, 2014. However, LeClaire Community Library Staff encourages library patrons to start utilizing the RiverShare Overdrive website before the end of the month. If you have any questions about this change or need assistance, visit the library or call us at (563)289-4242, ext. 4
For those who download eBooks and eAudiobooks onto their mobile devices, we will soon make instructions available on our website. Also, be on the lookout for classes later this fall on how to download eBooks or eAudiobooks onto your tablet or mobile device!
