Downloadable eBooks and audiobooks

Do you carry or will you carry OverDrive — an e-book provider service for public libraries?

Yes, indeed the Minuteman Library Network just recently began providing OverDrive to library patrons! Please visit the Minuteman Library Network website to try it out! It’s a brand new collection which will be growing in size in the near future, so check back frequently!

Waltham also still participates in the Recorded Books downloadable program.
Visit the Waltham Public Library website to check out more titles.

Feel free to contact the library at 781-314-3425 and press 5 for the Audio-visual Department if you’d like more information.

Happy Listening!

Web Renewal – Due 3 weeks from TODAY

I learned the hard way that “Renew All” meant that a book I took out yesterday is renewed, not for an added three weeks, but for one day! Ugh! How about explaining that under “Renew”?


Your frustration is understandable. At this point, the details about renewing online are described in the FAQs:

When you renew an item, the new due date is calculated from the date you perform the renewal. The additional time is NOT added on to the end of the original loan period…To get the maximum time on your loan, you should perform any renewals very close to the due date.

I will pass your message on to the staff at the Minuteman Library Network Central Site staff, who may be able to make this more clear up front.
