Rochester Hills Public Library Introduces New Downloadable Services

Rochester Hills Public Library (RHPL) has launched new downloadable services that enable patrons to utilize ebooks, movies, and television shows on their personal devices, in response to a growing demand. The new services include cloudLibrary, Kanopy, Acorn TV, and Qello Concerts.

“At Rochester Hills Public Library, we believe convenience and ease of use, are essential elements in serving a tech savvy community, and with our latest launches we’re taking our expansive collection of digital media to the next level,” said Jessica Parij, manager of Adult Services. “We’ve listened to our patrons and are offering innovative solutions to meet their growing demands for more digital media that is accessible at home or on the go.”

“Our new online media collection represents an even more compelling resource for library card holders, with more documentaries, eBooks, and concerts,” said Amanda Harrison Keighley, community relations specialist at the library. “When combined with our in-house programs like computer help for seniors and e-branch appointments, these new digital services are something everyone will enjoy.”
