MWR offers digital eBooks, audiobooks, music, videos

NewStayInformed_v2
Army MWR Libraries offer free access to more than 25,000 eBooks and audiobooks through the Army Digital Media Library.

Patrons may browse the Army Digital Media Library, borrow titles with a library account, and enjoy them on all computers and majors devices, including iPhone®, iPad®, Nook®, Android™ phones and tablets, and Kindle®. The Army Digital Media Library uses the Overdrive Media Console app, which offers the ability to sync bookmarks and reading progress across devices, variable listening speed for audiobooks and guidance for first time users.

Patrons registered at MWR Libraries can visit http://army.lib.overdrive.com or download the Overdrive Media Console app for their device. When using the Overdrive app for the first time, click on “add a library” and type “Army” in the search box. Then select “Army Digital Media Library.” You will need a library account web login and PIN from your library to check out an ebook or audiobook.

The collection of eBooks, audiobooks, music, and video available is being continually expanded. Titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period and there are no late fees.

“Now it’s easier than ever to download ebooks from the Library,” said Michael Steinmacher, Supervisory Librarian at Barr Memorial Library, Fort Knox, KY. “We want to make our great collection available, and as easy to use as possible, so I hope that people take advantage of this tremendous resource.”
