Customers help the Library build eBook collection

In June, we set out a challenge to customers – download as many eBooks and eAudiobooks as you could in one month. The customer that downloaded the most items in the month would win a 7” Kobo Arc tablet.

What our customers didn’t know, was through their support in downloading materials, we would be eligible to receive a prize from OverDrive, our eBook provider, that would help increase our eBook collection and in turn provide more materials.

Customers went beyond all expectations and helped us to achieve the highest prize level available, $2,500 worth of eBooks and eAudiobooks to increase our collection!

A big thank you goes out to all customers who participated in this challenge! Special recognition goes to Susan Dunn who downloaded the most material in the month and won the Kobo, which was generously sponsored by Best Buy Ajax. Susan had nothing but good things to say. "This has been an amazing experience," she said of her participation in the contest. "I've read more this month and read more new types of books than ever before. Best thing we've ever done!"

Our second place winner was Rena Michaels who won a $20 gift card from Best Buy.

If you have never downloaded an eBook or eAudiobook through the Library before, it’s easy and free! Click on eBooks under the eServices tab. Or visit the library and a staff member will help you get started.
