The DC Public Library has made it easier for customers to discover the e-books, audiobooks, music and videos that people can borrow when they visit their library. Media stations are being installed at libraries citywide that let customers browse downloadable titles using touch and swipe gestures.
Powered by the Library’s digital partner OverDrive, customers can scroll through the top 100 most popular titles, new releases, titles by subject and titles by language. Specific titles can be searched using an on-screen keyboard. Excerpts of all items can be read, watched or heard. Customers can then send themselves an email, text message or scan the QR code of an item that they want to borrow.
