My library (Birmingham) gives me access to overdrive through their own website, but I didn't know there was an app.

Available for android iOS and windows I believe, give it a try...

This is a really useful post thank you!! I'm definitely going to check this out!

great thanks so much

Just joined! Wish schools would give us the heads up on these things too. Thanks again

Good information here, thanks for sharing!

Thanks for that

Overdrive, That's the old app, download the new version, it's called Libby far more user friendly.
Note you'll only get books that your library has licensed. You will find different libraries offer different choices of books.
If you live near a different library group register with them too to get a different choice of books.

Wish they would give school the heads up on these things!

Been using it for a couple of years. One minor gripe, wish they would order the ebooks in colour band rather than general ages...

thanks

Thanks op

Not a stupid comment at all. If people don't physically visit libraries, they will loose them. As is, and has been, happening all over the country for the last few years.

No, think about it. It's really stupid to expect libraries to catch up with the amount of digital content that is available today.

The Birmingham library stopped buying new books in 2011and they'll not buy new ones for the time being. Having a way to download digital books for free, courtesy of the local library, is a win win for the user and the library. I'm OK with that. If anything, I'd rather my library had more non fiction to download. I need some expensive technical books which I cannot afford. Even if the library bought them, they'd only be available for one user at the time. Then I'd have to carry them around. Too much hassle!

Not stupid. Just a different point of view to yours.
