Butte County Library offering free e-book downloads

Jan 21, 2014 8:03 PM

The Butte County Library rolled out a program today that will bring new technology to our area and anyone with a smart phone, tablet, or e-reader can benefit. They opened their new digital platform to the public today, allowing people to download e-books and magazines for free. The new program is open to all residents in the county. All you need to do is log on using your library card number and your pin.

Whether it's a paper book or an e-book, officials say it's important to keep the library relevant to the community with this new technology. "We realized that it's the information that's important, not the format… We have a number of digital formats where people can download books to listen to, books to read, and magazines to read," said Oliver Allen, Outreach and Publicity Coordinator for Butte County Library.

The database will contain lots of popular titles along with over 50 different magazines. Best of all, you'll never have to pay any fines for late fees.

You will have to download some software before using the new program. Library staff will be available for assistance at the Chico Branch every Tuesday from 5:30-6:30 PM and every Wednesday from 1-2 PM, Paradise Branch on January 22 from 2:30-4:30 PM, and Oroville Branch on January 29 from 2:30-4:30 PM.
