The Calgary (Alberta) Public Library is taking part in a larger campaign by the Canadian Urban Libraries Council to explain to patrons the trouble they’re sometimes having acquiring ebooks and audiobooks for their collections. Digital Resources Manager Anne Marie Fryer said the service keeps growing in popularity with the rise of e-readers and tablets. In 2007, the first year Calgary offered ebooks, they checked out about 10,000. In 2018, they loaned out 1.8 million. Fryer said digital books and audiobooks are lent out to Canadian libraries on a one-to-one basis.
