Beginning November 1, 2019, Macmillan and their subsidiaries and imprints will restrict access to e-book purchases for libraries. Under the new policy, a library purchasing group will be restricted to one copy of new releases for two months. For Plymouth patrons, this will have a dramatic effect on wait times for new releases. Our library is in an Overdrive purchasing group organized by Midwest Collaborative for Library Services (MCLS). Under Macmillan’s new policy, the MCLS group will be limited to a single purchase to be shared by over 20 public libraries.Read More
