What are eBooks?
An eBook is an electronic version of a printed book that can be read on a computer or handheld device, such as an iPad, tablet, phone, or eReader, like a Kobo.
How do I get eBooks from the library?
With your library card you can use Overdrive for free to download books!
How long can I keep the books for and how many can I have?
You can have 10 eBooks out at a time from OverDrive. They will stop working after 3 weeks and you never have to worry about late fines. You can renew these books twice.
Can I have the same eBooks on my Kobo, phone, and my iPad?
You can access your library titles on up to 6 devices at once, as long as they are all authorized with the same account.
|How to get titles on your device:
- You need to download titles to your personal computer and transfer them to your Kobo/ereader using free Adobe Digital Editions software. Download it here.
- NOTE: This software is not yet compatible with Windows 10. You may download ADE 3.0 (an older, compatible software version) here.
