Ebooks at Your Library

The Ohio Digital LibraryIf you have a library card, your PIN, and (if you want to place a hold on an item not currently available) an email address, go to the Ohio Digital Library (ODL) website and log in selecting “Preble County District Library” for your library. You cannot use the pcs at your library to download materials. Download onto your own pc, laptop, kindle, eReader, tablet, or mobile device.
