Search new book titles in The Library's new Overdrive Advantage Collection
The Library has just added more than 6,000 ebook and downloadable audiobook titles to its existing collection through ListenNJ.
Unlike ListenNJ titles, which are shared by other libraries, this new Overdrive Advantage collection is available exclusively to East Brunswick Public Library cardholders. We have bought titles that were not previously available through ListenNJ as well as additional copies of existing ListenNJ titles to help reduce the wait time for our customers. Customers can continue to search for titles in the library catalog or at http://listennj.com. For the best searching experience we recommend that customers login under “Digital Media Account” on the ListenNJ site before searching and look for the orange Advantage icon next the titles.
