Marceline Carnegie Library now offers eBook technology

 

Marceline, MO – It’s finally here! The Marceline Carnegie Library is now up-to-date with technology thanks to a gracious donation from Michael and Ximena Olinger. The Library is now able to provide eBook services to current and future library card holders. If you do not have a library card and would like to be able to enjoy these services, stop in and the Library staff will be happy to get you set up. A library card is free to anyone who lives within the city limits of Marceline, because we are supported by the local taxes.  For persons living outside the city limits, the fee is currently $10 per year.

 

You will need to stop at the Library to set up a username and password to be able to access the OverDrive link that is located at the top of the Library’s website (www.marcelinelibrary.org). Library Staff will walk you through the setup process so you can enjoy the tons of digital books and other media available at your fingertips.  You can also download the app on your cell phone, Ipad, kindle, or any other digital device that allows digital media.

 

You only need access to the internet to download eBooks. Once you have downloaded your choice on your device, you will be able to access your digital material anywhere.

 

Your card must be in good standing (no fines, overdue, or damaged books) in order to access the eBooks. There is no additional fee at this time to use this feature.

 

The OverDrive application can be downloaded on the Chromebooks for students of the Marceline R-V School District to use as well. Children must have a library card to be able to set up an account and parents must authorize permission by filling out a form for their child to own a library card.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to call Joyce or Shelly during regular business hours 660-376-3223 Monday –Friday 9am-5pm.
