December 9, 2013

The Livermore Public Library will be unveiling its very own Overdrive eBook and Digital Audiobook platform on Monday, December 9. Library card holders can borrow popular digital media anytime, anywhere, for free by visiting the Livermore Public Digital Library at http://livermore.lib.overdrive.com/. There will be an informal kick-off hosted in the Civic Center Library Community Rooms from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm where library card holders can ask questions, explore the new site together, and have help getting started!
The Livermore Public Library anticipates patrons will experience less wait time for popular eBook and digital audiobook titles and improved availability. The Livermore Public Library is offering one on one instruction to patrons on the use of this new platform, as well as other eBook platforms the Library provides. Appointments can be made in person at the Civic Center Library, or by calling 925-373-5500.
Users can browse the collection, borrow with a library card, and enjoy on a computer, tablet, smartphone or eReader device. Downloaded eBooks can be transferred to eReader devices such as NOOK®, Sony® Reader™ and many more.
