OverDrive To Arm Libraries With Kiosks

eBook distribution company OverDrive has created a kiosks that libraries can install to help educate users on how to access digital content at their library. The OverDrive Media Station, which can be either a wall-mounted device or a free-standing kiosk, lets library patrons try out the OverDrive digital media platform at the library.

The touch screen system lets users search for content and sample how eBooks, audiobooks, digital music and videos work from the library. The organization is demonstrating the new kiosks at the American Library Association Annual Conference in Chicago later this week.

“OverDrive Media Station provides a unique and compelling way for libraries to introduce their popular eBook, audiobook and video service to the millions of people who visit libraries every day,” explained David Burleigh, director of Marketing for OverDrive, in a statement.  ”These large, interactive displays can be placed in high traffic areas throughout the library, from the welcome area to the café, to reach even more of the community and develop loyal users.”
