If your library is planning to close during the holidays, your OverDrive ‘Virtual Branch’ will still be open!
Let your patrons know that if they can’t wait until the New Year for their next book, they don’t have to. Even while the library is closed, users can still browse your download collection, check out with their library card, and download to their computer — at home or while they’re traveling to visit family and friends. Plus, they may be able to put that new iPod® or Sony® Reader™ to good use.
So, as you plan to announce your holiday closing, don’t forget to mention that your ‘Virtual Branch’ is still open – 24/7 365! (If your library’s online catalog will be shut down, please contact your OverDrive Project Manager before promoting this.)
