It's a Lucky Day for WI Digital Library Patrons
Now you can find in-demand ebooks available to borrow immediately in the WI Digital Library’s Lucky Day Collection. These titles can be found, borrowed, and read on a first-come, first-served basis through Libby or the OverDrive app. The program is inspired by the concept of a “browsing collection” with select copies of popular titles on display in library branches. You can get to the WI Digital Library by clicking on the WPLC banner or quick link above.
Within the Explore section in Libby, WI Digital Library patrons can browse all available titles in the “Skip The Line” list. The list of titles will change as books are returned to the collection, so check back often. Patrons may also naturally discover Lucky Day copy by browsing or searching for a title.
The Lucky Day titles are available for a shorter lending period, 7 days maximum, than the library’s other digital books to help satisfy fast readers looking to get their hands on the latest releases and bestsellers. Patrons can check out 2 Lucky Day titles at one time. All titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period.
Readers may browse the library’s digital collection, instantly borrow titles and start reading or listening for free with a valid library card. This service is compatible with all major computers and devices, including iPhone®, iPad®, Android™ devices, Windows® tablets, and Kindle® [US libraries].
