Permanent young adult ebooks added to Forsyth County Library

August 06, 2013
FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — The Forsyth County Public Library System has added the largest permanent ebooks collection so far, catering to youth.

There has been a 72 percent increase over last year in ebook checkouts, according to Stephen Kight, the county library's assistant director for public services.

Linda Kelly, assistant director for materials, said there were 253 titles added in the science category; 184 added to social studies; 121 in arts, sports and careers; 64 added in math for kindergarten to third grade readers and 36 titles were added to language arts.

Although the library has built a sizable collection of ebooks, young readers were still absent.

"This is the first time venturing on kids books," Kelly said. "We will now have an ebook library for all ages."

The titles added were part of the library's permanent collection, meaning multiple users will be able to check out the books simultaneously.

The ebooks will be accessible from all e-readers; smartphones; Kindle and iPads.
