With Project Mill-E, HCPL Aims to Circulate One Million eBooks in 2016 (and here is why it matters to you).

We at Harris County Public Library believe in setting goals, and we have set a lofty one for ourselves—or, more accurately, for you, our customers: we want to circulate one million eBooks and eAudiobooks from our OverDrive Digital Media Catalog in 2016.

Right now, you’re probably thinking, “That’s all well and good, but what’s in it for me?”

We’re glad you asked.
