Library to Go

Starting today, you can borrow books from the Library anytime, anywhere - thanks to Library to Go. Downloadable eBooks and Audiobooks are now available online to everyone with a current library card and a computer with Internet access. Start by going to http://librarytogo.shortgrass.ca

From there you can browse a selection of over 500 new and recent titles in either eBooks and Audiobook format. (eBooks can be read on a computer or with specific eBook readers. Audiobooks can be listened to on an iPod, MP3 player or burned to compact discs.) Choose the books you want to read (or listen to), add them to your cart, then head to check out.

Choose either 7 or 14 days for your loan period, then download your books. At the end of your loan period your books automatically expire, which means never having to remember to return your items back to the library on time. (Hooray for no overdue fines!)

This new service is available to members in all of the Shortgrass Library System which include Medicine Hat, Brooks, Redcliff, Bow Island, Foremost, Bassano, Graham (Ralston), Tilley, Alcoma (Rainier), Rolling Hills, Rosemary, residents of Cypress County, Newell County and the County of Forty Mile.

Tell us, what you think of Library to Go? Which books would you like to see us add to the collection?
