RBdigital Resources Transferring to OverDrive

The library currently provides access to OverDrive and RBdigital, leading suppliers of ebooks and e-audiobooks to libraries. Recently, OverDrive acquired RBdigital. In mid-September, all ebook and e-audiobook content from RBdigital will be transferred to OverDrive. One week before the transfer, RBdigital will post a message to its users within the RBdigital app, directing users to OverDrive. The transfer could take up to 24 hours.

If you have items currently checked out on RBdigital, you will be able to continue using them until their lending period ends. Holds, wish lists, and checkout history will not be moved to OverDrive. However, you can export your Transaction History to OverDrive. You can find additional details here.

The e-magazines from Zinio will continue to be accessed through RBdigital until that content is transferred within the next few months. If you have questions, please call the library at 402-296-4154 x23.

card reader

Charge Your Device While You Browse!

Now you can charge your phone, tablet, iPad, Kindle, or other device while you’re browsing or working on the computer in the Plattsmouth Public Library. You don’t even need a cord since the charger already has several different connectors for Apple, Android, and other devices. The charger is at the main circulation desk and can accommodate up to 8 devices at a time. The charger is plugged into an outlet, not a computer, so your data is secure.

The library also has a card reader that will allow you to read data from a camera memory card or other micro or mini SD card. The reader has slots for four different kinds of cards. It connects to the computer with a USB cord. You don’t need to have your own cord for your camera or other device. Just ask for the reader so you can download pictures or other files from your device while you're in the library.

the patio is finished!

Visit Our Patio!

The library has a patio in the back of the building! It was constructed between June 27 and July 5, 2012, with bricks from Main Street and is shaded by a pergola. You can see how the patio took shape by looking at these pictures. It was made possible with a grant from the Cass County Visitors Promotion Committee and donations from the Plattsmouth Public Library Foundation and the Friends of the Library. The city donated the bricks. It's a great place to stop and read a book or to listen to storytime, at least when the weather is nice. Thanks to Midwest Outdoor Design for installing it.
