"Well over half of U.S. library card holders don't know whether their local public library lends e-books, according to a recent Pew report." -Amy Gahran,

M/RCPL customers are ahead of that curve. If you read your Library's web site, you know that M/RCPL is part of the Ohio Ebook Project and that you can download ebooks through the Library's web site or directly to a mobile device with your library card. If you read the news, you also know that some publishers have made it challenging for public libraries to supply the demand for ebooks.

M/RCPL will continue doing its organizational best to provide the materials our custmers want, in the formats they want. Your Library provides help with using your ereader and downloading those free ebooks, and you can find print copies of popular books at your Library too.

"The community role of public libraries is evolving, and libraries are seeking ways to better meet the needs of people who are especially in need of their services." Read the rest of Amy Gahran's article here.
