San Antonio Public Library reaches One Million Digital Check Outs through OverDrive in Calendar Year 2016

The Scorch Trials: The Maze Runner Series by James Dashner is 1 millionth digital item checked out in 2016

The Library works with OverDrive, the world’s leading distributor of digital content for libraries, to offer eBooks, eAudiobooks, streaming video and periodicals for check out to San Antonio Public Library card holders. On Sunday, December 18th, the one millionth digital item was checked out from OverDrive by a patron from the Central Library. The item was an eAudiobook of The Scorch Trials: The Maze Runner Series by James Dashner.

The only other Texas Public Library systems to achieve one million checkouts with OverDrive during one calendar year were Harris County Public Library and the Houston Area Digital Media Consortium.

In 2007, the San Antonio Public Library became one of the first library systems in the nation to offer digital eBooks. Since then, the digital collection has grown significantly. The San Antonio Public Library now offers more than 100,000 items for checkout. Items can be checked out and downloaded directly to any personal mobile device or computer. These items also return themselves when lending periods are over, so borrowers never receive late fees for digital items!

Below are lists of the top 10 checked out digital items, top 10 checked out eBooks, and top 10 checked out eAudiobooks in 2016 (as of December 20, 2016).
