More Books Available for Warren Patrons on Overdrive
Warren has begun to add a few additional eBooks and Audiobooks to Overdrive which will be available ONLY to patrons with a Warren Library Card Number. Our numbers start with P5674 in case you aren't sure where your card originated. When you go on Overdrive to look for a book, sign in first thing. If the book you want has a long waiting list (more than 3), contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll buy an additional copy if funds allow. So far I've been buying eBooks because they are considerably less expensive than audiobooks. We have: The Great American Whatever, (Federle, juvenile) The Guest Room (Bohjalian) A Little Life (Yanagihara) and Miller's Valley (Quindlen). Books exclusive to Warren have a funny little orange symbol in the left-hand corner. Let me know if you have questions!
UPDATE! I've just added an audio edition of All the Light We Cannot See and an eBook edition of The Nightingale to our private collection. Enjoy!
UPDATE! I've just added an eBook of Hide Away by Iris Johansen. The waiting list was up to 11.

Thousands of eBooks for Warren patrons
Do you have an eBook reader? Interested in free content? Go to http://warrenlibrary.freading.com/index and log in with your library card number. (Note: this will only work with Warren numbers for the time being). This system works with "tokens". Every patron can use up to 5 tokens per week. Unused tokens roll over. If the library runs out of tokens we can increase our allotment. Let me know if you have questions. (Note: compatible with most eReaders, but of the Kindle family, only with Kindle Fire)

Great list of library benefits.
The Mad River Valley Libraries (Joslin Memorial, Waitsfield; Moretown Memorial; and Warren Public Library) do not offer every single one of these services, but we do have a lot of them with more in the pipeline.
