I have previously blogged to let you know my books are available in my local libraries, but I was recently reviewing the distribution channels for my books, and I realized that I have not yet told you they are available on Overdrive. Why am I telling you this now? Because Overdrive is a service used by many libraries for e-books and audio books. It means that if your local library uses Overdrive, my books will be listed on their catalogue. And more importantly, if they do not currently have a copy in stock, you can recommend that they go ahead and order one in. Once they receive a stock copy of a book it becomes available for library members to check out.
So, if you get your books from your local library and want to (literally) check out my books, why not jump online and see if they have them in stock. If they do not, I’d suggest recommending that they order a copy and put it on hold for you when they receive it. If they like your recommendation, they will order a copy in (this usually only takes a couple of weeks). Once it arrives you’ll be notified via email and you can log in to check it out.
That’s my tip on checking out my books from your local library. On that note, I’d just like to say that our libraries do a great service for the community and can do with all the support they can get. So if you do not currently make use of their facilities, why not give them a go.
