Many of our ebook readers have already discovered Freading. It's a great alternative to our Overdrive collection with a wide selection of titles from a growing list of publishers. Freading definitely has something for everyone, but romance fans have discovered that their especially strong collection of steamy titles is not to be missed. But the best thing about Freading is that there are never any waiting lists. Freading has a unique business model that allows multiple people to read a given title at once. That's great news for readers!
If you've tried Freading already, you know that it works on a unique token system. Each library card holder is allotted a certain number of tokens per week to "spend" on ebooks of their choice (more on that below). Each ebook "costs" between one and four tokens. The number of tokens charged for each title is determined by the publishers. You can "spend" your tokens each week or let them accrue over a four week period to get higher value titles. If you haven't used all of your tokens within four weeks, they disappear and you start over with your original allotment on week five.
Now the really good news: we've just doubled the number of tokens you get each week from two to four! This will give you even more choices and let you read more of those four-token ebooks. Grab your Free Library card and PIN and visit our Digital Media page to get started!
