Everybody’s Talkin’: Part 1
E-books was a popular subject—from celebrating our selection to requests for more titles and hopes for learning how to download them. Thanks to our membership in Washington County Cooperative Library Services (WCCLS), we offer a variety of downloadable e-books and audiobooks in both English and Spanish for readers of all ages. Are you new to e-books? They are great for travel or to fulfill that craving when you want something to read right now, especially when it’s after the witching hour!
WCCLS offers 88,063 e-book titles and 28,455 downloadable audiobooks—of which 2,851 are in Spanish. All these are listed in the catalog with more being added each month. During the last year, Tigard patrons downloaded 133,441 e-books and downloadable audiobooks.
If your e-reader is fighting you, sign up for 1-on-1 Tech help in English or Spanish and make friends with it.
Want to give e-books a try? Tigard offers several e-readers pre-loaded with popular titles. Check one out and take it for a test-read. And our friendly reference staff is always happy to help you.
Monthly E-Newsletter: Books and Bits
Books and Bits is sent monthly to Tigard Library card holders who have provided their email addresses. It provides information on programs, reading recommendations, tips on enhancing your library experience and updates on the technological services we offer. Back issues also provide book recommendations from the Reading Room and helpful tips to get the most out of using your library.
