It seems like all of our favorite stores are already announcing their holiday sales (I can’t be the only person who has started shopping already, can I?), so we here at OverDrive don’t want to be the only ones left out of the discounting fun! With that in mind, we are excited to announce that as we close out 2021, we are discounting all of our Databases and Streaming Media services to allow you to stretch your dollars even further!

Our Databases will be 15% off through Dec. 31, allowing your patrons to learn a new instrument for their year-end gatherings with ArtistWorks, take a course in their time off through Universal Class, get that much-needed holiday revitalization with Learn It Live, get their affairs in order with LawDepot, and plan for their educational next-steps with Method Learning. The discount is reflected in Marketplace and the price shown is what will be charged.

Streaming Video services that are activated by Dec. 15 and running through Feb. 28 will enjoy their 3rd month of live Cost Per Circulation subscriptions for FREE, up to $150 credit. With this, patrons can turn up their holiday parties with live concerts through Qello, make homemade gifts for friends and family using Craftsy, snuggle up and get cozy while watching award-winning films on iNDIEFLIX, and master new skills with The Great Courses.  

Not to be left out of the fun, Kanopy Kids will be free for new Kanopy customers to sign up for until Dec. 31! This curated collection of high-quality videos for your young (and young at heart) patrons features titles that support literacy, STEM, education, language learning, and other relevant topics. Highlights include Sesame Street, PBS Kids, Weston Woods, and more!

Libby is your patrons’ gateway into these great services, and Marketplace is your place to shop for these great deals, whether or not you are currently subscribed to these amazing resources. They will prove to be a great way to treat your patrons to some year end cheer, no gift wrap required!
