Penguin Will No Longer Offer eMaterials for Library Purchase

According to OverDrive, one of our CyberShelf vendors, Penguin will no longer offer additional copies of eBooks and download audiobooks for library purchase. Additionally, Penguin eBooks loaned for reading on Kindle devices will need to be downloaded to a computer then transferred to the device over USB. For library patrons, this means Penguin eBooks will no longer be available for over-the-air delivery to Kindle devices or to Kindle apps.

OverDrive is continuing to talk to Penguin about their future plans for eBook and digital audiobook availability for library lending.
