Popular waitlisted eBooks and eAudiobooks available immediately through the Libby and OverDrive apps
SURREY Libraries’ Superloan program is coming to high-demand eBooks and eAudiobooks. These titles can be found, borrowed, and read on a first-come, first-served basis through the Libby and OverDrive apps.
In the Explore section in Libby, Surrey Libraries patrons can browse all available Superloan titles in the “Skip the Line” list. The list of titles will change as books are returned to the collection, so check back often. Patrons may also naturally discover a Superloan copy by browsing or searching for a title.
“Digital books and audio are the fastest growing areas of Surrey Libraries’ collections and we are thrilled to be able to offer patrons the newest titles as soon as possible,” says Amy Ashmore, Manager of Collections Services. “Digital lending is a key part of our services, and in the last year, we’ve seen a 28.5% increase in users borrowing eBooks and eAudio.”
Superloan titles are available for a shorter lending period (7 days instead of 21 days) than the library’s other digital books to help satisfy fast readers looking to get their hands on the latest releases and bestsellers. Readers can also browse the library’s “Always Available” list in Libby to find all available eBooks and eAudiobooks.
Readers may browse the library’s digital collection, instantly borrow titles and start reading or listening for free with a valid library card. Don’t have a library card yet? Don’t worry! Visit one of Surrey Libraries’ 9 branches throughout Surrey to get one for free.
This service is compatible with all major computers and devices, including iPhone, iPad, Android devices, and Windows tablets. All titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period and never incur late fees. Readers can also download titles onto Libby or OverDrive for offline use.
