Can’t track down a copy of a Christian classic? Looking for something to listen to during that upcoming beach trip?
The Xenos Study Center has partnered with leading e-book provider OverDrive to offer dozens of e-books and audio books by C.S. Lewis, Andrew Murray, Bill Hybels, Ken Sande, Lee Strobel, Francis Schaeffer and other leading authors.
The service is easy to use and totally free, Study Center director Caitlin Kleinpaste says.
“Our collection of books at the Study Center is amazing, but sometimes people just don't have the time to get to Main Campus or wait for a book to be delivered,” reports Kleinpaste. “Having e-books available means that you can download one from home and start reading immediately. Having audio books available for download is also huge.”
Patrons sign in to the OverDrive library using their Study Center user name and password, then access materials through their web browsers or download them to a mobile device. The launch is part of the Study Center’s revamped website — which now allows patrons to search the catalog, renew items and request items to be delivered to 4th Street Cafe or The Warehouse.
“This year has been all about expanding our resources,” she adds. “We’re continuing to expand the availability of resources to the church to aid in equipping people to do ministry.”
