San Mateo County Library Expands eBook Collection

Library users can access a growing collection of bestsellers, new releases and classic titles as well as heavily illustrated eBooks including children’s storybooks, cookbooks, and craft books.

San Mateo County Library this week announced a new digital platform for eBooks and more than 1,500 titles to its collection.

Axis360 is a new digital media service that offers interactive eBooks enhanced by color, video and audio.

Library users can access a growing collection of bestsellers, new releases and classic titles as well as heavily illustrated eBooks including children’s storybooks, cookbooks, and craft books.

Readers with a San Mateo County Library card can take advantage of the new eBook service 24/7 when they visit the library’s website from a computer or mobile device.

The cloud-based delivery system greatly simplifies the process of downloading what patrons want to read onto the devices they prefer to use, including Apple, Android and Windows tablets and smartphones.

At the end of the lending period, titles will automatically expire and are returned to the digital collection – eliminating late fees. 

“The Library is excited to be able to offer additional eBooks to our community members,” Anne-Marie Despain, Director of Library Services, said in a statement.

“Since the Library first introduced eBooks, we have witnessed the popularity of this format and the incredible demand for digital services. We are constantly adding to the collection.”

Axis360 is the most accessible eBook platform available, allowing limited-sight patrons guided reading as well as text-to-voice options for all titles.
