The PLAN cooperative purchasing group for e-books, e-audiobooks, and e-magazines provides participating libraries with significant cost-savings and access to a much larger collection. All PLAN member public libraries are invited to join this group. If your library is already a customer of OverDrive, or some other vendor, your current e-book service can be merged into the PLAN cooperative purchase to take advantage of the benefits enjoyed by the group. Visit the PLAN OverDrive site.
