eBook, eAudiobook Holds

Our eBook and eAudiobook service, Overdrive, is changing their holds system to be more responsive. Members will have more flexibility and control over their holds, and items will circulate more quickly.

Starting the week of March 2, holds through Overdrive (including the Overdrive and Libby mobile apps) will no longer automatically be checked out. When a hold becomes available, members will have 3 days to check the item out, or you can choose to suspend the hold if you're not quite ready for it.

If the item is not checked out within the 3 day period, the hold is suspended for 1 week. Holds that are suspended maintain their position in line (i.e. you will stay at position 1).

If you have any questions, or would like to see a demonstration of the Overdrive service or Libby mobile app, please contact Member Services at 905-623-7322 x2722,, or drop in to any branch.

Elevator Accessibility Improvements

The Municipality of Clarington officially unveiled accessibility upgrades to elevators at the Municipal Administrative Centre (MAC) and the Clarington Public Library Bowmanville Branch.

“We are continually striving to create a barrier-free community, where residents of all abilities have access to our buildings and services,” said Clarington Mayor Adrian Foster.

The upgrades include audio announcements and Braille to allow those with visual impairments to access the elevators without assistance. The audio announcements let people know when the elevator has arrived and what floor they are on, while the Braille makes it easier to select the correct button.

The Municipality of Clarington received a $16,940 grant to renovate and make improvements to the elevators. The project was funded in part by the Government of Canada’s Enabling Accessibility Fund which provides funding for projects to ‘ensure greater accessibility and opportunity for Canadians with disabilities in their communities and workplaces.’
