OverDrive

wreath_ltsIf you enjoy reading seasonal fiction this time of year, then get into the Holiday Spirit with a large selection of e-books and e-audiobooks available through the Library.  Whether you love a good Christmas mystery or a heartwarming story with romance, you'll find something appealing.  See our handy list of titles and then go to the Download button on our homepage to login to OverDrive and select a good read!

kindlefireThe Penguin Publishing Company, supplier of many of our most popular e-book titles, has changed their method of downloading OverDrive material for owners of Kindle e-readers and those using the Kindle app.

 Instead of being able to wirelessly download e-books directly to your device, you must first download them to your computer and then transfer them to your device via a USB connection.  Unfortunately, Kindle format books from Penguin WILL NOT work with the free Kindle apps on iPad, iPods or smart phones.  This was a decision made by Penguin without consulting public libraries.  We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.  Listed below are some of the authors who are published by Penguin, so you'll have an idea which e-books are affected by the new procedure: (Note, this list is not all inclusive, so check the OverDrive web site when selecting an e-book.)
Geraldine Brooks, Lee Child, Tom Clancy, Harlan Coben, Catherine Coulter, Clive Cussler, Ken Follett, Julie Garwood, Sue Grafton, Martha Grimes, W.E.B. Griffin, Dick Francis, John Le Carre, J.D. Robb, Nora Roberts, Sohn Sanford, Kathryn Stockett, and Stuart Woods.

  

iStock_ereader_XSmallFor those who read e-books or listen to e-audiobooks, you know that popular titles freguently have long hold lines on OverDrive. The Library purchases additional licenses of these in-demand items to be used only by Plymouth Library Card holders. View a list of digital titles purchased for our local collection during the month of July for downloading onto your MP3 players or e-readers. Note: e-audiobooks are designated as (Audiobooks) in the list.

Please stop by the Help Desk on the Main Level for more information on how to "borrow" e-books @ the Library.

 

 


litigators_coverE-books used on Kindles, Nooks and other e-readers continue to gain in popularity each month.  Plymouth District Library is a member of the MCLS Digital Consortium, a group of 25 libraries spread across the southern part of Michigan.  Patrons from each of these libraries are downloading from the same group collection and this may result in long wait lists for bestsellers.  Needless to say, none of us want to be number 100 on a wait list for a popular book!  For this reason, Plymouth has become an Advantage member Library which means additional copies of these  same e-books are purchased for Plymouth residents ONLY.
