So you’re thinking about gifting a digital device this season – or really hoping to receive one. Are you unsure how to get great books, magazines, music and movies onto that device, especially after an expensive holiday season?
Cecil County Public Library is your best source for free digital content for your device. Upload at home or use the library’s enhanced WiFi network to connect to all your library has to offer. There are no fines for any of CCPL’s digital materials.
Overdrive: ebooks and e-audiobooks are available to download anytime.
Zinio: full copies of popular magazines, downloaded to your device, indefinitely. Back issues are also available.
Hoopla: movies, TV shows, audiobooks and music. Search and download your choices for great viewing and listening.
Ereaders also make figuring out what to read next easy. With sites like GoodReads, you can see what your friends are reading, get suggestions, and read reviews. Our Staff Recommendations page also features fantastic reviews of books and other materials, hand-picked by our talented staff.
Perhaps the best feature of handheld devices is that you can carry the library with you, no matter where you are. Stuck waiting in a doctor’s office? Download an eBook. Going on a trip? Load up your device with music, magazines and books that won’t add a single pound to your suitcase.
If you have questions about using or setting up your device or how to download content, CCPL’s librarians are always available to help. For tutorials and guidance, visit the digital library section of our website.
Find, borrow and enjoy! What is your favorite download?
