Our OverDrive catalog page has gotten a facelift! You’ll see some of the changes as soon as you open the home page—the book images are bigger and more eye-catching, and you can choose to see your search results in a grid or a list view.
Other exciting changes include:
One-Step Checkout: Once you’ve logged in with your library card number and PIN, it takes just one click to borrow a title.
OverDrive Read: You have the option to immediately start reading your ebook in your browser, online or offline, with no software or downloading required. With the browser-based reading, your progress will sync across devices, so you can leave off at page 47 on your tablet and pick up at page 47 on your phone. And of course, you can still download the ebook and transfer to your eReaders that don’t have internet capability.
There will be a Downloading 101 program at the Mesquite Main Library on Saturday, May 11, from 2:00 – 4:00 pm. We will discuss downloading ebooks and audiobooks in general, with a focus on all the new changes. There will be time for questions afterward, so feel free to bring your tablets, smart phones and eReaders.
