Message from the Director

Richard Conroy, Library Director

August 2018 Director’s Message

Are you a fan of British movies and TV shows?  If so, you’re in luck!  We are pleased to announce that we now provide access to Acorn TV free of charge to those who have an Essex Library card.  Not only that, we are also developing a collection of downloadable audio and ebooks that are exclusively available to Essex residents.  These materials will be provided in addition to the collection of downloadable audio and ebooks that are still available through OverDrive.

To access the new exclusive materials just go to our home page and click on the icon labelled “Essex Exclusives Free Digital Content”.  You will then need to click on the “register” button and create a username and password.  After that you’re all set.  Once you’ve logged in you’ll find separate categories for audiobooks, ebooks and video (Acorn TV).  If you’ve already been enjoying our selection of digital magazines, you will now access them through the new link.  If you have any questions, please feel free to stop by and we’ll be happy to demonstrate how to use this new service!
