What is eDPPL?

You may have noticed a new option in the left hand navigation of our website called "eDPPL." What is eDPPL? Allow me to explain.

Digital content like eBooks, music, and movies is increasingly important. We want to provide an easy place for you to find what kind of digital content we offer and how to get to it. On the eDPPL page, you will find links to MyMediaMall, Freegal Music, and Filmmakers Online.

As you may know, MyMediaMall is your source for downloadable eBooks and audiobooks. eBooks from MyMediaMall can work with a variety of devices including Kindles, Nooks, and Sony Readers. You can also download apps for your smartphone or tablet device.

Freegal Music is a new product that we are offering for music lovers. With your Des Plaines library card, you can download three songs per week. The songs are in MP3 format and can be used on any type of device--iPods, smartphones, or a computer. The best part? You get the keep the songs forever.

Finally, Filmakers Online provides a wide variety of streaming documentaries and films. This is a great resource for students and teachers, but also for people that just want to learn more about the world.

We will also use the eDPPL page to post FAQs, tutorials, and other helpful resources. And, remember, that eDPPL is accessible 24/7 from your home or office.

Can I access these resources from home?

Yes, you can!

With a valid Des Plaines Public Library, any of the links above should take you right to the online resource.

Don't have a library card? Stop by sometime and get one. Any Des Plaines resident can apply.
