WCPL Patrons Can Borrow Through New Statewide eBook Consortium

The Indiana State Library has announced the formation of a new statewide eBook consortium, the Indiana Digital Library, launched on Tuesday.

Nearly 200 public libraries in the state will all share the OverDrive platform to create a statewide consortium of e-books and magazines. This new consortium – made up of libraries that serve populations under 150,000 – will benefit libraries, taxpayers and library users, according to a press release from Warsaw Community Public Library.

Patrons of WCPL will have the ability to borrow materials from the WCPL collection and the member library collections. The state library is paying the platform fees for the consortium and 100% of the member libraries’ fees will be spent on materials.

“The new Indiana Digital Library consortium will be a great service and benefit to Indiana libraries and the customers of Indiana libraries. This collaboration is a great example of Indiana libraries working together to provide high quality services to library users,” said Jake Speer, state librarian.
