One of the most exciting initiatives to come out of libraries in the past few years is the development of eBook and audiobook collections available to library patrons. Students and staff at Canandaigua Academy have access to downloadable content through three library systems — Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES, Pioneer Library System, and the New York Public Library.
Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES
Access Overdrive using BravesLink; it’s in the HS Library folder. You are automatically logged in using your school credentials, giving you access to almost 300 eBooks and 36 audiobooks. This collection is growing, so check back to see what titles have been added recently.
You can also install the Overdrive app on your iOS or Android device, then add the library Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES. This will also log you in using BravesLink.
Pioneer Library System
OWWL2Go users will need a valid Pioneer Library System card — such as a Wood Library card — and their library PIN. OWWL2Go includes over 13,000 eBooks and more than 6,000 audiobooks.
You can also install the Overdrive app on your iOS or Android device, then add the library Pioneer Library System. You will need your library card number and PIN to authenticate.
New York Public Library
If you live, work, go to school or pay taxes in New York State, you can get a library card for the New York City Public Library system, which gives you access to its digital collection — 120,000+ eBooks and 24,000+ audiobooks.
Visit this NYPL website to get information on how to apply for and validate your NYPL library card. Once you receive and validate your card, you can use the number and PIN to access Overdrive. Add the library New York Public Library using the Overdrive app on your iOS or Android device.
