OverDrive Promotional Materials

Through the Wisconsin Public Library Consortium (WPLC), library customers can download ebooks and audio books from “Wisconsin's Digital Library” using a service called OverDrive. OverDrive ebooks work on most ebook readers -- like Kindles, Nooks, Sony Readers & iPads -- plus most smart phones.

The newest feature from OverDrive is called "See book. Read book." You simply find the book you want, click on the title, and select "Borrow." You can then start reading immediately by clicking the "Read" button. Or, you can visit your "Bookshelf" to download the ebook.

Most audio books available through OverDrive will play on devices that support the WMA format, but Wisconsin's Digital Library also has a growing number of audio books in MP3 format, which will play on iPods and other devices that do not support the WMA format. For a complete list of supported devices, visit the OverDrive Device Resource Center.

OverDrive also has developed materials (.pdf) to help people know what eReaders they can use with the WPLC Digital Download Center.
