E Books Are Here!

You asked for it... We got 'em!

 

The Readlyn Community Library now has eBooks available for download.  Readlyn Library card holders can check out and download eBooks anytime, anywhere by visiting bridges.lib.overdrive.com  Titles will automatically expire at the end of the 14-day lending period.  And with digital downloads…no late fees!

Go to bridges.lib.overdrive.com, download Adobe Digital Editions, the free software that manages your eBooks, then checkout, download and read any of the over 400 titles (and counting) that are currently available.  You can also transfer your eBooks to a Barnes and Noble Nook, the Borders Kobo and the Sony Reader (sorry, they’re  not compatible with Kindles). 

NOTE  Fall, 2010:  A Collection of public domain EPUB eBooks is now ready for patrons to enjoy from our OverDrive website!  They're not current bestsellers, but it gives us many more choices.  This is a separate collection of eBooks from the main OverDrive collection.  The collection contains over 15,000 titles.  Patrons do NOT need to sign in to download the titles.  When a patron hovers over a book cover the available metadata displays to them.  Checkouts from the collection do not count against patron's regular checkout/lending options.    Titles act like Always Available titles so there are unlimited simultaneous downloads but down loads do not expire.  The collection of eBooks also uses the Adobe Digital Editions software that patrons are currently using.  Please refer to the 'tips' link at the top of the introduction to the collection for instructions on how to download content.
