Lending Library E-books
Posted 10 October 2012 - 03:36 PM
I am just wondering what it would take to make some of those titles available electronically, as my local library does with some books.
If I check out a library E-book, I can read it immediately. After two weeks, it becomes unreadable, unless I renew. No issues with returns, postage, wear and tear, etc etc.

I remember asking my local branch and they got 4 books in for me.
The thing is that most of the books l really liked and asked them to get in .....never got returned as they were great helpful books.
But apart from the stress of asking they were very respectful of my request and got some in.
You could do your local area a favour and help others like yourself.
Great idea though l suspect most or some of them are available at a fairly reasonable cost on line.
Welcome by the way l see you are new to Pandy's .
I have loved having the library here and it is no big hassle to have a book to return.

You are quite right, it is no big deal to request and return the books.
And thank you very much for the welcome. I actually joined pandora about a year ago, but made very few postings since that time. I find it especially difficult to talk about my own situation. Still, it has been helpful in many ways to read of other people's experiences.

Thank you for the great suggestion. This is something we would need to look into to see if it were feasible in terms of what would be required to implement it and the cost involved in that, but it is certainly something we can keep in mind for the future as the board continues to grow and technology, as ever, advances :)/>

You can message one of us and we can find out for you, or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org - which is probably the better option because we can then forward you on to the people who look after the library side of things. Whatever you prefer :)/>

Just to let you know, i tried purchasing books from amazon for the library (from the Pandy's wishlist) and the books were returned as they were not able to be delivered to the address. You might want to look into this.

Thanks so much for trying! The library has been closed for the time being. We hope to reopen at some point but right now there are some issues to work out. We'll be sure to make an announcement when it reopens. :)/>
