Branch District Library has expanded its services with audiobooks and eBooks, available to download from the library’s website. Library card holders can check out and download digital media anytime, anywhere by visiting testing.branchdistrictlibrary.org/overdrive.

Users may browse the library’s website, check out with a valid library card, and download to PC, Mac, and many mobile devices. Users will need to install free software. For audiobooks: OverDrive Media Console. To read eBooks, users will need Adobe Digital Editions. Titles can be enjoyed immediately or transferred to a variety of devices, including the Apple iPod, Sony Reader, and many others. Some audio titles can also be burned to CD to listen on-the-go. Titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period. There are no late fees!

This new service, powered by OverDrive, is free for patrons with their library card. To get started downloading audiobooks, eBooks, and more, visit testing.branchdistrictlibrary.org/overdrive.
