The Nebraska Overdrive is a free service that is provided by the Kimball Public Library to its patrons.  We have seen a big increase in the enrollment in this program over the last year and even more this year.  Many received gifts of I-pads, Kindles, eReaders, etc. for Christmas the last 2 years.  The influx of enrollments across the state has resulted in the Nebraska Overdrive Consortium purchasing more copies of popular books and more book titles especially the eBooks.  When you see that there are many holds on a book that you want, be patient because the system already has or will obtain more copies as demand dictates.  Thus the waiting period isn’t that long.  Also, please note at the bottom of the screen, there is a place that says books available at any time.  These are books from the Gutenberg Project which made many, many books available that the copyrights have expired.  If you are interested in learning more about this program, we can help you through it.  Classes may be offered in the future.
