About Library Ideas & FReading:
Library Ideas, LLC is a privately held company located in Fairfax, Virginia. Library Ideas supplies digital products and websites to libraries of all kinds around the world. Their signature products are Freading eBooks, Freegal Music and Rocket Languages for Libraries.
The Freading Ebook Service is a download Ebook service sold to Libraries for free use by its registered cardholders. Please check with your local library to see if they have contracted for the service. The service is only available to subscribing libraries and members, and you must enter the Freading Site via the Library URL.
The Freading service offers library patrons unlimited, simultaneous access to the available titles. There’s no access fee for libraries and libraries budget a given amount for access to the collection. Patrons can then download books for a two-week loan, with a two-week renewal if desired. The library is charged for each download as follows up to the limit of the budget:
o 0-6 months after print publication $2 per loan, $.50 per renewal.
o 7-24 months after print publication $1 per loan, no renewal charge.
o More than 25 months after print publication $.50 per loan, no renewal charge.
The fees are invisible to the patron. Libraries can also just pay as they go, receiving a regular monthly statement, to avoid patrons being denied access once a set budget limit has been reached.
Participating libraries include Orange County Public Library System (FL), the Free Library of Philadelphia, Maricopa County Library District, AZ, Los Gatos Public Library (CA), the Westport Public Library (CT), and many more.
