The Seattle Public Library is increasing the number of downloadable books and media that you can place on hold and check out. You can now place a hold on 25 items (up from 10) and check out 25 items (up from 20).

The Library’s digital OverDrive collection has grown from 1,878 items to over 43,000 digital, downloadable e-book, audiobook, music and video titles. Items can be downloaded to a PC or Mac, and transferred to portable listening, viewing and reading devices. Checked-out items are returned automatically after 21 days, so no due dates or late fees to worry about!

To browse and download digital e-books, audiobooks, music and videos available via OverDrive, go to www.spl.org and click on “Library Collection,” then select “Digital Books & Media.” A Library card and PIN number are required to download items.
