National Read an eBook Day with Overdrive and Hoopla!

Today is National Read an eBook Day when we celebrate one of the most convenient ways to read a book.

Nothing can replace the feel of a book in your hands or the way a full bookshelf can brighten any room, but eReaders can offer new possibilities to those who are unable to get to their local library branch to borrow books. The ability to customize font size and type, contrast and built in lights can offer improved experience for those readers who are visually impaired.

At Bossier Parish Library we have two services that allow you to borrow eBooks on your device: Overdrive and Hoopla.

Hoopla is our relatively new service that offers not just eBooks, but eAudiobooks, Music and Movies. You can find it online at You can also find our instructions here on our blog: Hoopla.

Overdrive is one of our older services, but adds new content every day. Overdrive also allows you to download eBooks. and Audiobooks. You can find it online at or you can download the Overdrive app on to your phone or tablet.

For more information on these or any other Digital Service provided by Bossier Library, ask at your local branch! We will also be having a Digital Services information session on Friday September 25th at the Central Branch. Pick up a class calendar for more details!
