eBook collections available for Johnson County residents

Posted: Updated:

Johnson County Libraries will now start offering combined eBook and digital audiobook collections to residents.

The Coralville Public Library, Iowa City Public Library, and North Liberty Community Library are all part of OverDrive.

OverDrive is a digital service that allows library users to borrow and enjoy eBooks and audiobooks from their library's digital collection, anytime and anywhere. OneDrive is free, but if you must live in the Johnson County limits and have a library card to use it.

The digital service gives Coralville, Iowa City, and North Liberty library users will have access to more than 9,000 eBooks and 5,000 audiobook titles.

“Given the layout of our communities, many Johnson County library users have multiple library cards,” says Anne Mangano, coordinator of collections for the Iowa City Public Library. “In order to better meet their needs, and increase the number of digital items available to them, we decided to share our resources, forming Digital Johnson County. It doesn't matter if you live in Coralville, Iowa City, or North Liberty, you have access to the same collection.”
