Check out more ebooks, audiobooks now


(8/1/2018)

Southeastern Libraries Cooperating (SELCO) and Rochester Public Library (RPL) recently entered an agreement that allows users to borrow ebooks and audiobooks from either OverDrive collection. This means that patrons from a SELCO Library (i.e. Winona Public Library) can borrow ebooks and audiobooks from RPL’s OverDrive collection, and RPL patrons can borrow from SELCO’s OverDrive collection. Users will have access to more materials as well as the ability to check out and hold more items. How it works:

On your computer
1. Go to either SELCO’s (https://selco.overdrive.com/) or RPL’s (https://rochester.overdrive.com) OverDrive.
2. Search for the items you want.
3. When you either borrow or place a hold, you will need to login as a SELCO patron with your library card number.

On the OverDrive App
1. Open the app.
2. Tap the three lines in the upper left-hand corner.
3. Select “add a library” and type in “Rochester Public Library.”
4. Select RPL. (Its logo is an open book with RPL in the center, and it’s blue.)
5. Sign in with a library card.) Select “SELCO Patron” and then type in your library card number.)
6. Use the three lines in the upper left-hand corner to navigate between each library’s collection.

On the Libby App
1. Open the app.
2. Tap on Libby’s face in the upper right-hand corner.
3. Select “add a library” and type in “Rochester Public Library.”
4. Select RPL. (Its logo is an open book with RPL in the center, and it’s blue.)
5. Sign in with a library card. (Select “SELCO Patron” and then type in your library card number.)
6. To navigate between collections, click on Libby’s face in the upper left-hand corner and select the library you would like to search.

RPL’s collection contains video streaming. These videos can only be viewed from a computer or in the OverDrive App. Videos are not compatible in the Libby app at this time.
