Tyler Public Library material
Tyler Public Library continues to thrive in the digital age. The Library is not only a place for books, but a place where you can collaborate, attend classes and check out games. Many citizens flock to the Library’s computer lab seeking assistance in job searching and receive needed technical assistance from staff. The Library also provides a multitude of digital resources.
“Change is a constant and libraries are a sure indication of this,” says City Librarian Ashley Taylor. “Libraries evolve to suit the needs of their communities.”
The Library offers digital access to electronic books and audiobooks via Overdrive and RB Digital as well as streaming video, online classes, research databases and so much more. Those with a Library card can gain immediate access to all digital resources. There are also e-cards available.
“The e-card is ideal for anyone who finds it difficult to get to the Library due to mobility issues or simple inconvenience,” says Taylor. “We want to make it easy for our citizens to access materials from the convenience of their homes.”
The circulation of library materials has increased by more than 16 percent since 2014. Physical material circulation has grown by 11.5 percent. Physical materials include books, DVDs, games, literacy kits, etc. Electronic materials show an increase of 57 percent and include e-books and e-audiobooks.
