The Okefenokee Regional Library System now offers the innovative Freading eBook Service.
The service allows the Okefenokee Regional Library System to increase the size and diversity of its collection by offering access to tens of thousands of books, none of which require the patron to wait in line to download.
Under the terms of the agreement, registered OKRLS card holders in Appling, Bacon, Clinch, Pierce and Ware counties can download a select number of books each week at no direct cost via www.okrls.org. The library pays the cost of the downloads.
Freading has its own apps for the iPad and iPhone, and its own apps for Android tablets and phones. It is also compatible with the Kindle Fire, the Nook devices, and Kobo devices.
“We have been waiting a long time for a service like this that delivers great content, compatibility with lots of devices and simplicity of use. We think this will be incredibly popular with our patrons and will help the library in marketing itself to the community,” said Jessica Everingham, OKRLS Director.
To access Freading eBook Service, go to the library’s website at www.okrls.org, click the Freading link and follow the FAQ directions on the Freading website.
