Now you can check out more digital books for longer at the library

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.
