Free e-books and audiobooks on Overdrive

Did you, or someone you know, get a tablet for Christmas? Are you tired of the free self-published books available for download on Kindle?

Did you know that you can download free QUALITY ebooks and audiobooks on Overdrive?

Overdrive is a subscription service paid for by the library on your behalf. They have the most popular authors, and regularly add new books to the collection.

You can choose to search for books that are available right now, or you can put popular books on hold and they will be downloaded to your device automatically when it becomes available.

Overdrive is available for Kindles, Androids, Apple products, and many more. The Overdrive app is available on the App Store.

Why buy e-books when you can check them out through the library for free? Just click here to get started today.

Food for Fines starts November 1st

The Cherokee Regional Library System’s 2016 Food for Fines Campaign will begin on Tuesday, November 1st and will continue through Wednesday, November 23rd.

Library patrons may “pay” library overdue fines with a canned food item. This will help re-stock food banks in Dade and Walker County Georgia. Please help us as we give back to our community during the holiday season. Items collected will be donated to Tri State Food Bank, The Cottage, the Care Mission and the Rossville Church of Christ Food Pantry.

One canned food item equals $1.00 in paid fines with a limit of 10 cans (or $10 in fines). Lost or damaged book fees may not be paid with food. Food items must be in good condition and unexpired.
