Library2Go ebook survey


Earlier this year, the Oregon Digital Library Consortium was awarded a grant by the Oregon State Library to purchase a collection of downloadable ebooks for Library2Go. We know the ebook collection has been used heavily, but we'd like to know more about your experiences with Library2Go ebooks.

The survey is now over. Thanks for your interest.

New Good Reads Book Lists

Two years ago, we introduced Good Reads, a resource for book reviews, author biographies and interviews, lists of bestsellers and award-winning books, books by theme, and books that have recently been talked about on television.

Now, we have two new book lists available through Good Reads: Fiction Adventure (thrillers, espionage, westerns) and New Nonfiction. Each of these lists is published monthly, on the 7th and 8th of the month, respectively.

Take a look: Fiction Adventure and New Nonfiction.

You can sign up for a news feed or an email newsletter for either or both of these new lists, or any of the already existing lists.

Look for the Good Reads link on the wccls.org main page under "Lending Library." Contact us if have questions or comments. We're eager to hear what you think of Good Reads.
