The Free Library is excited to launch a trial of a new service for all you ebook readers out there! This service—which is free with your Library card and PIN and will be offered for a limited time—is called Freading, and can be found via our Download Media button on the homepage or by clicking here.
With Freading, Library card holders have access to hundreds of ebooks—including extensive titles in genres such as romance, mystery, and self help—with no wait. You heard us: With Freading, you never need to place a hold because any book available in Freading’s catalogue can be checked out immediately to to your ereader! (Click here for a list of compatible devices.)
Freading works by using a token system: Each user is allotted two tokens a week and can accrue them over a four week period for a maximum of eight tokens a month. (After that, your tokens will be reset for the next month.) Books, which “cost” anywhere from one to four tokens apiece, can be checked out for a two week period.
We’re so excited about this new service and hope you’ll leave a comment here to tell us how you like it!
