Updates to our digital collection

The Meridian Library District’s digital offerings will look a bit different this fall. We are making a couple of shifts to more effectively address our community’s interests for digital content. 

With changes in both Hoopla and OverDrive offerings, we have concluded that it is no longer cost-effective for the Meridian Library to maintain both platforms. We have started to reduce borrowing limits for Hoopla, and we plan to discontinue our subscription after September. 

However, that means we will soon be able to reallocate funds toward purchasing more titles in OverDrive. This will reduce wait times for popular items, increase the number of titles that are always available, and much more. We look forward to sharing more specific details later this summer. 

In the meantime, please take our survey and let us know what you would like to see in our OverDrive collection. You are also welcome to fill out our purchase recommendation form to suggest titles you would like to see in our collections.

If you’re not already familiar with OverDrive, we encourage you to browse the many offerings there! We currently have over 16,000 eBooks and over 5,000 audiobooks available for immediate checkout on the platform, with more titles added monthly. You can also access magazines and materials from partner libraries! Download the Libby app to get started!
