The Blair Public Library has expanded its digital collection with the addition of Disney Digital Books. This new collection features nearly 700 Disney Online Books and downloadable EPUB and PDF eBooks. The Disney Online Books are browser based and can be enjoyed on a Windows or Mac computer. Titles offer interactive features to enhance the user experience such as a ‘magic pen’ that pronounces words with just one click, and the ability to look up word definitions. Users will recognize familiar Disney characters like Mickey Mouse, Winnie the Pooh, Disney Princesses, and more.
Users can browse, check out, and enjoy titles on their computer. Disney EPUB eBooks, along with the rest of the eBook collection, can be downloaded to a computer, plus transferred to a compatible eBook reader such as the Barnes & Noble Nook or Sony Reader. To check out both types of Disney Digital Books, users need a valid library card, computer, and Internet connection. At the end of the lending period, titles automatically expire and are returned to the collection. This collection is “simultaneous use” – meaning many people can check out the same book at the same time. No holds will be necessary.
The library, partners with the Nebraska Library Commission and OverDrive, Inc. (www.overdrive.com), a global leader in digital media services, to offer this digital service.
