Ocean County Library System Upgrades eBooks Collection

Jan 16, 2019

The Ocean County Library System has announced a new home for its wide selection of popular digital eBooks and eAudiobooks. The library has offered digital books through OverDrive as part of the eLibraryNJ consortium since 2010.

Library cardholders can now access the OverDrive collection by visiting http://ocl.overdrive.com or by searching for Ocean County Library in the free Libby or OverDrive apps.

Patrons can also download the free Libby app from their device’s app store. eLibraryNJ users will have to select Ocean County Library from the OverDrive or Libby app and reenter their OCL barcode in order to utilize the collection.

“The goal of transitioning to a stand-alone website was to provide better service for our Ocean County Library cardholders, including shorter wait times and greater control over items purchased,” said Christi Aldellizzi, supervising librarian – collections. “In addition, cardholders now have the option of recommending titles for purchase right through the OverDrive website. Our OverDrive collection is at almost 19,000 titles and growing each day as selectors add more materials to the site.”

For information on accessing the collection, contact John Foglia, digital selector, at jfoglia@theoceancountylibrary.org. E.E.
