The West Georgia Regional Library is offering ebooks and audiobooks to patrons at no cost. If you own an electronic device (Kindle, Nook, iPad...) -- and have a PINES card with WGRL, you have access to many free digital books. To checkout an eBook or Audio Book, go to
http://wgrl.net/ (A link is now on the media center's home page.)
On the right of the website page click on the eAudiobooks link. CREATE AN ACCOUNT or LOG IN. This is where you will register with your library card number. You must have a library card to sign up for an account.
Once this is done, you will have access to hundreds of titles in ebook and audio format!
I will be meeting with someone from WGRL in the next couple of weeks to discuss the best way to get this information to students and parents. I will be inviting media specialists from other schools in our system to attend. This is exciting news! As always, we are ... Dedicated. Determined. Digital!
I'm a library media specialist, former newspaper editor and freelancer, who uses technology every day to promote and deliver information about reading, literacy, judging resources, researching and writing.
