Great news for our borrowers – you can now access eBooks through our catalogue!
South Australian libraries have joined forces to purchase a collection of eBooks and Audiobooks via a provider called Overdrive. Logging in with your library card you can download books onto your eBook reader, tablet PC, iPad or smartphone (or music player, in the case of Audiobooks). You can borrow them for up to 21 days and they are automatically returned from your device, so you won’t get any late fees.
And the best part? It’s all free.
To get started, just go to our website or catalogue and look for the eBooks link. Browse or search for a title you’re interested in, click Borrow, and transfer it to your device to get reading.
Please note that due to a rights management issue with Amazon we can’t currently offer this service to Kindle users in Australia.
For more information on the world of eBooks, see this brochure from the Public Libraries SA website.
