Overdrive

5 March 2013
Arthur Library has recently joined the Overdrive group. For those of you who don’t know what it is, it’s a way for you to check out book electronically via e-reader (kindle, ipad, etc.) for free. For those of you who are already implementing it, I hope you are enjoying the program. If you have any questions at all, I’m very happy to try and figure out the answer for you. On your computer, you can check out the website at http://nebraska.lib.overdrive.com/5737CBBB-E94F-4D04-9107-B50814D01780/10/50/en/Default.htm

E-books now available at our library

15 November 2012

Arthur¬†Library has just became a partner in Overdrive, a free online library. Some of you may know what this is already, but for those of you that don’t, it is a colaboration of libraries that provide e-books for their patrons with no charge. E-books are books that you can read or listen to¬†electronically. You are going to need three things to read/listen to¬†e-books. First, you’ll need a type of¬†electronic device such as, smart phones, computers, laptops, tablets, etc. Second, you’ll need internet access(you will actually be downloading the book to your electronic device, so you’ll only need internet access when you are actually downloading the book or looking at the website). Third, you’ll need software. This will be easiest if you come in and I can help you with this part. If you’re a little more independent and feel you know what you’re doing you’ll just need your username and password to start. The website you will be going to is¬†http://nebraska.lib.overdrive.com¬†. I’m going to try and add this¬†link to our website.¬†You can go ahead and call me to get¬†your information. I’m at the library from 2-5 p.m.¬†Mon. thru Fri., but if this doesn’t work for you, you can just call me at 308-289-5574. We are still working out all of the kinks and aren’t actually going live until November 16, 2012, so please bare with me as I am learning this as I go also. It’s a very exciting new feature for our library, especially for those of you who have difficulty getting to the library, and I hope you enjoy it. If you have any questions at all you can either come see me or just give me a call.
