New Digital Media

Posted & filed under Blog, Technology.

There are special shelves in the library building for new books, music, and DVDs, but it can be harder to find new releases in digital media. The shortcuts below will help you find the latest titles to hit our virtual shelves.

Ebook and e-audiobook fans have access to thousands of titles through MyMediaMall. To find the newest, start on the New eBooks & eAudiobooks page on this site. Click on a book cover, and sign in with your library card number to check availability, borrow, and download.

These items, if not available for immediate use, are likely to have significantly shorter waiting lists.

On hoopla, where there are never any waiting lists, lists recently added titles are available for each type of media: music albums, audiobooks, movies , TV shows, eBooks, and comics. Follow hoopla on social media or sign up for weekly emails to get notification of new music releases every Friday. (The announcements used to be known as New Music Tuesdays, but the music industry moved its release day!)
