Peru offers two collections of eBooks and eAudiobooks, OMNI, OMNI for Kids and eRead Illinois. Accessible anytime, anywhere, eBooks are never overdue, automatically returning themselves on their due date.
The library participates in OMNI, a group of 70+ libraries offering downloadable books to our patrons. OMNI has over 15,000 titles available for borrowing. With OMNI you may borrow 4 eBooks and/or eAudios at a time, with a maximum of 12 per week.
Not sure how to download to your eReader, computer, tablet or phone? Ask a staff member for help or use one of the downloading handouts available at the circulation desk or on our website.
To download from either catalog you need your barcode and PIN from your Peru Library card.
Is your Peru Library card the new card? Over the next few weeks, the library staff is exchanging our ‘new’ library card to replace our older library cards still used by some patrons. The card exchange takes about a minute, happening when patrons with our older cards next stop by the library.
Over the last 20 years, the library has had several different library cards, changing to the current card about 4 years ago. The current card is a two part set, with the traditional ‘credit card’ size and the smaller key chain size. Exchanging the remaining older cards to the current version will help reduce confusion over which card is the library card.
Patrons may want to update their saved account information on their computers and smart phones to reflect their new library account number and PIN.
