Axis 360 is available!
York County Libraries is live with a new digital platform Axis 360. Our content can be reached by using the Magic Wall or by downloading the Axis 360 app for Android, IOS, or Kindle. During the month of June, set up your account and check out an item or place a hold, and you will be entered in a drawing to win an iPad or one of 3 Kindle Fires. The drawing will be limited to one entry per person.
You will find that most of our Overdrive content has transferred to Axis 360. What is new and exciting is that we have set up standing order plans for popular fiction authors and series. You will have a similar borrowing experience to Overdrive.
You will be able to:
- Borrow up to 5 items at a time – each with a 2-week lending period.
- Renew available items. The button will appear next to the item 3 days ahead of time.
- Place up to 10 holds. Some popular fiction titles will be on the Magic Wall up to 6 months ahead of time.*please note, holds in Overdrive were not transferred to Axis 360, you need to have an account to have a hold
- Receive an email when a hold is ready. You will have 3 days to check it out.
- Request that YCL purchase a title. This feature is found on search screen, and you will be able to make one request every 7 days.
