TOMS RIVER – Ocean County Library is excited to announce a new home for our wide selection of popular digital eBooks and eAudiobooks. The library has offered digital books through OverDrive as a part of the eLibraryNJ consortium since 2010.
Ocean County Library cardholders can now access the OverDrive collection by visiting http://ocl.overdrive.com or by searching for Ocean County Library in the free Libby or OverDrive apps.
Patrons can also download the free Libby app from their device’s app store. eLibraryNJ users will have to select Ocean County Library from the OverDrive or Libby app and reenter their OCL barcode in order to utilize our collection.
“The goal of transitioning to a standalone website was to provide better service for our Ocean County Library cardholders, including shorter wait times and greater control over items purchased. In addition, cardholders now have the option of recommending titles for purchase right through the OverDrive website. Our OverDrive collection is at almost 19,000 titles and growing each day as selectors add more materials to the site,” shares Christi Aldellizzi, Supervising Librarian, Collections.
If you have questions about the new way to access the collection, please contact John Foglia, Digital Selector, at firstname.lastname@example.org
