Downloadable Books & Audiobooks


OCLN’s Digital Media Collection

There’s always something new from Overdrive Media, the service that provides downloadable e-books and audiobooks to library card holders in the Old Colony Library Network. Here’s the latest news for Android, iPod, and iPod touch users from the Overdrive Digital Library Blog:

Today, we released an update to the OverDrive apps for iPhone and Android, which adds support for eBooks from OverDrive libraries. Now your customers will be able to download both EPUB eBooks and MP3 audiobooks directly to their iPhone, iPod touch, or Android phone/tablet. New users can search for “OverDrive Media Console” in the Apple App Store and Android Market, while current users will be alerted to update the existing OverDrive app on their devices. [See complete post on the blog here.]

Check out the Overdrive Digital Library Blog for their bloggers’ Best of 2010 list, and reviews of e-book and mobile devices such as the Nook Color,  the Sony Reader, and the Kobo E-Reader.
Remember before buying (!): Amazon’s Kindle and Apple’s iPad are not currently compatible with free-through-your-library Overdrive media. For a updated list of Overdrive-compatible devices, click here.
