Ray Countians who receive a Kindle or other eBook device for Christmas will find they’ll have access to a wealth of materials locally – all without additional cost.
Steve Meyer, director of Ray County Public Library, announced last week that on Dec. 1 the taxpayer-funded library would become a member of the MoLib2Go.org Consortium, a group of 70 or so libraries with 10,000 eBooks and other electronic media available to members.
Residents will only need an electronic device such as a Kindle, a computer and a library card to take advantage of the consortium’s holdings, Meyer said.
Joining the consortium is an economical means of achieving one of the library’s goals, Meyer said.
“We’ve been interested in starting an eBook program here at the library, but as you know we’ve been using all our extra funds to pay off our building debt,” said Meyer.
