Join the “Digital Dash”!

Click the picture to see how we are doing!

Mayville Public Library and Wisconsin’s Digital Library are on a mission: Get more people to try digital reading! While we have offered ebooks and digital audiobooks to the community through our partnership with OverDrive for several years, we know that many people are still surprised to learn their library card gives them access to over 71,000 free digital titles. Throughout the rest of this year, our library along with many other Wisconsin libraries are participating in OverDrive’s “Digital Dash” contest. If we hit 4,347,351 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. These digital books are free for anyone with a valid library card.  Readers can access the library’s digital collection 24/7 by visiting https://wplc.overdrive.com or by downloading the Libby app from their device’s app store.
