You may have noticed on our Overdrive page that our digital content is moving to a new location. Don’t panic! The Library District will still be using Overdrive as our primary source for digital content, but most of the Public Libraries in Indiana have chosen to merge into a single digital consortium. The transfer of content to the new Indiana Digital Library is underway at this time. For the next few days, you can still download content from the Indiana Digital Download Center as before. Eventually, that web page will be discontinued and you’ll need to go to: https://idl.overdrive.com/ We’ll be updating the information on the Library webpage, so that new link will be active soon.
The first time you use the new site on each of your computers or devices, or on the Libby app, you’ll probably need your library card handy to enter the your number, along with your PIN.
Why the merger? Pooling the resources of so many libraries will allow us to make better use of your money. Also, the Indiana State Library has agreed to cover the Overdrive platform fee – that’s your taxpayer money at work again! The new Indiana Digital Library will also have a team of librarians actively managing the collection and making purchases of high-interest titles to keep wait times shorter.
If you have any questions or problems during the transition, just give us a call at 812-926-0646.
For the next two weeks (February 10-24), you have the opportunity to participate in an online community of readers all reading Love Lettering by Kate Clayborn. This title is available through The Indiana Digital Download Center (IDCC) with no waitlists or holds! It’s available as both an ebook and audio-book, and we also have print copies at the library. The IDCC also has special features like an author interview, discussion questions, and the chance to participate in discussion with other readers.
This romance is a perfect choice for February!
One of the most beloved romantic comedies of 2020, Love Lettering is a heart-melting and touching story that fans of Tessa Bailey, Jen DeLuca, and Emily Henry cannot miss. In this warm and witty romance from acclaimed author Kate Clayborn, one little word puts a woman’s business—and her heart—in jeopardy.
Meg Mackworth’s hand-lettering skill has made her famous as the Planner of Park Slope, designing custom journals for her New York City clientele. She has another skill too: reading signs that other people miss. Knowing the upcoming marriage of Reid Sutherland and his polished fiancée was doomed to fail is one thing, but weaving a secret word of warning into their wedding program is another. Meg may have thought no one would spot it, but she hadn’t counted on sharp-eyed, pattern-obsessed Reid.
A year later, Reid has tracked Meg down to find out how she knew that his meticulously planned future was about to implode. But with a looming deadline and a bad case of creative block, Meg doesn’t have time for Reid’s questions—unless he can help her find her missing inspiration. As they gradually open up to each other, both try to ignore a deepening connection between them. But the signs are there—irresistible, indisputable, urging Meg to heed the messages Reid is sending her, before it’s too late.
