Updates to the CELA website
We have been working closely with our service provider to add more functionality and improve experience for patrons and libraries. This page provides updates about current functionality and what we're working on adding next.
Thank you for your patience and ongoing support while we work to update our website.
DAISY magazines are now available.
These magazines include the full text of magazine articles as well as images for those who can use them. All of the magazines can be read with compatible apps such as Dolphin EasyReader or Voice Dream Reader for iOS/Android, or a DAISY player using Direct to Player service. For best results please make sure you are using the current versions of apps like EasyReader. More information about how to read magazines is available on our Magazine page.
Author and Book summaries available on Direct to Player
We have updated our system so that Direct to Player books now include author information and book summaries. Books added to a patron’s bookshelf as of February 3, 2020 will include that information when accessed using EasyReader, Victor Stratus and Stream models and other devices and apps. Previously downloaded books, or books added to bookshelves prior to February 3, 2020, may not include that information.
New titles added
We've added more than 500 new audio titles to our collection, including works by Stephen King, Elizabeth Gilbert, Louise Penny, Kyle Mills, Vince Flynn and Andrea Beaty.
