OverDrive eBooks Now Compatible with Kindle
New Canaan Library card holders can now check out OverDrive eBooks onto Kindle. Read Amazon's announcement for more details. Nearly all of the Library's eBooks are now readable on Kindle, as well as Nook, Sony eReader, iPad and iPod, other Android tablets, smart phones, and computers. The Library's collection of about 500 eBook titles is continually growing, offering titles for readers of all ages and interests.
To get started, browse the Library's OverDrive collection. Find an eBook you're interested in and add it to your cart. While in your cart you’ll then click on “Get for Kindle” and will be directed to Amazon.com. (This requires logging into your Kindle account at Amazon, if you’re not already logged in.) You can then read the book on your Kindle device or the Kindle app for smartphones or computers! Use OverDrive's Kindle Help if you run into any trouble, or contact us if you have any other questions.
If the eBook you are interested in is checked out, you can click "place a hold" to request it. You will receive an emaill when the eBook is available for you.
