Overdrive Goes Live On August 1st!

July 26, 2007

Library patrons can celebrate over the new Overdrive service which will be available on the Essex Library catalog on Wednesday, August 1st. Overdrive provides popular down-loadable audiobooks for patrons to download to their personal computers for free in the comfort of their home. The audiobooks can then be loaded onto an MP3 player and some of them can also be burnt to CDs. Unfortunately, Overdrive does not allow for use on iPods. There is a list of compatible devices on the site along with easy download instructions. You don’t need to come in to the Library to create an account; all you’ll need is the barcode from your Essex Library card.
