Borrow books on-line!

Leesburg --  Are you looking for the latest best seller but don't have time to make it to the library? Now the Lee County Public Library can come to you.

A new program called Georgia Download Destination allows library cardholders who have Internet access to download books and videos for free. All you need is the software. 

"What patrons, or library users, will need to do is to go to the Lee County website www.LeeCountyLibrary.org and there's a link on there for this download service it's called overdrive. And they'll just click on that and download some software onto their computer," said Lee County Library Director Claire Leavy.

Libraries in Dougherty, Worth and Thomas Counties are participating in the program as well.
