Stromsburg Public Library strives to meet the needs of our patrons in any way that we are able. One way we do this is by providing access to free eBooks and audiobooks.
OverDrive is an online collection of audiobooks and eBooks available to patrons for check out. eBooks are compatible with most popular devices and many may be downloaded directly to the device without the use of the computer. Audiobook files must first be downloaded to the user’s computer before transferring to a compatible device.
I highly encourage you to visit the website http://nebraska.lib.overdrive.com. Browse the collections and see what is available. I especially like the “Lost in the Virtual Stacks” section. You never know what hidden gem you may find.
Begin using OverDrive by clicking the “Getting Started” tab on the left hand side of the page. You can check the “Device Resource Center” to make sure that your device is supported by OverDrive, then learn how to use OverDrive by clicking the “OverDrive Help” button. This is the most valuable tool on the site.
The “OverDrive Help” section has articles and videos that cover every device and how to use them in conjunction with OverDrive. The videos are very detailed and literally take you through every step of the installation and use.
To set up your account with OverDrive you will need your library card number. If you don’t have your library card, please call the library at (402) 764-7681 and one of the librarians will help you.
If you have any difficulties getting started with OverDrive, please stop by the library and we will be happy to assist you!
