Amazon Partners with OverDrive to Offer Library eBooks
      #41362 - 09/21/11 02:49 PM

Amazon and OverDrive today announced their partnership that will offer public library ebooks to Amazon Kindler users. OverDrive has begun adding Kindle compatibility to all of the U.S. public and school libraries in its network and expects to have all sites updated within days. Here is more info:

OverDrive, the leading multichannel digital distributor of eBooks, audiobooks and other digital content, supplies 15,000 public and school libraries worldwide and more than 11,000 in the U.S. To see if your local library is a member of the OverDrive network, visit OverDrive Search.

The process for borrowing a public library or school eBook for Kindle is similar as for other devices. Most eBooks already in the library?s catalog supplied by OverDrive are compatible with Kindle, so users simply browse or search for ?Kindle Book?, check out a title with a valid library card, and then click ?Get for Kindle.? Access to the Kindle Book will occur at Amazon?s website after signing in and selecting delivery to the user?s Kindle device or any of the free Kindle reading apps. As with all eBooks and other digital content at OverDrive-powered libraries and schools, titles are available 24/7 and incur no late fees because they automatically expire at the end of the lending period. For more details on Kindle compatibility, including the availability of Amazon?s Whispersync technology, please visit OverDrive?s Digital Library Blog.
