Downloadable eBook Help
April 05, 2013
The number of people using eBook readers is growing. A recent survey shows that 21% of American adults have read an eBook this past year, and more are purchasing Nooks, Kindles, iPads, and other eReaders. If you are looking at purchasing an eReader soon, or you already have one and are needing help downloading eBooks to your device (for FREE through the Library), we can help you!
OverDrive Digital Downloads is a great resource where you can find eBooks to checkout on your eReader, a list of helpful resources on how to download and install what you need to make your eReader work with OverDrive, and links to websites that will give you helpful support for the type of eReader you have.
The first thing you will need is a working MCPL library card. The second step is to find out what software or app you need on your eReader. Some devices require an Adobe ID, some require an Amazon account, and some require you to be hooked up to your computer.
If you are confused, run into problems, or just need extra help – we are HERE for YOU! You can come into our branch and ask for our branch eBook expert, Robert. If he is unavailable, we can get you set up with an appointment to meet with him. Or, for more assistance, you can submit a question electronically or call someone through our phone support.
We hope you enjoy your eReader and find many good reads through the eBooks we offer!
