Putnam County Library Provides eBook Services

The Putnam County Public Library has announced that Baker & Taylor’s Axis 360 digital media library (eBooks) is now available for its patrons.

Axis 360 is a revolutionary digital media platform, providing libraries and their patrons with a stateof the-art system for circulating eBook content and Blio, the ground-breaking eReading software.

Libraries using the Axis 360 service benefit from the latest Web technologies and cloud-based delivery to mobile devices. Patrons at PCPL will enjoy the dynamic presentation of titles on the Axis 360 Magic Wall, the ease of locating books of interest via Browse by Subject pages, as well as guidance provided via book reviews and recommendations for further reading. Axis 360 also improves the user experience for borrowing digital content from the library.

Blio provides cloudbased delivery which greatly simplifies the process of downloading what patrons want to read onto their devices. Blio currently works on Windows tablets and smartphones, i-product (iOS 4.0 & higher) and Android 2.2 & higher devices. Additional device compatibility, including Nook, Kobo and Sony Reader, will be available at a later date.

For more information contact the reference desk at 765-653-2755, ex. 124, log-on to the website at www.putnam.lib.in.us or visit the library at 103 E. Poplar Street for assistance.
