Enjoying Library E-books Is About to Get Easier

OverDrive Logo

If you download e-books from the library, you know that the process can be cumbersome – especially for new users!  It seems our e-book vendor, OverDrive, has heard our concerns and will be releasing some features to help address them.

The feature I’d like to highlight today is a new platform called “OverDrive Read.”  This platform would allow library e-books to be read from any standard web browser, without the need to download software or authorize a device.  It is due to be released by the end of the year.  To read more about this new platform, see their press release.  If you would rather watch a video about it, see below.  Stay tuned for more news about improvements to our media download service.
