St. Louis Public Library Challenges Readers to Try Digital

St. Louis Public Library wants to challenge patrons to try digital reading!

While we have offered eBooks and digital audiobooks to the community through our partnership with OverDrive for 9 years, we know that many people are still surprised to learn their Library card gives them access to over 35,000 free digital titles.

Throughout the rest of this year, the Library is participating in OverDrive’s “Digital Dash” contest. If we hit 194,944 digital checkouts by the end of the year, we will be eligible to win additional funds to buy more eBooks and audiobooks for our OverDrive collection.

The Library’s digital books are free for anyone with a valid Library card. You can borrow bestsellers and classic eBooks and digital audiobooks to enjoy on smart phones, tablets, Kindles and other eReaders, MP3 players and computers. We also offers a dedicated space for younger readers, with a variety of juvenile and young adult titles. There are never late fees with digital titles, as they return automatically at the end of the lending period.

You can access the Library’s digital collection 24/7 by visiting or by downloading the OverDrive Libby app from your device’s app store.
