Downloadable eBooks

Visit the OverDrive Catalog

The Library offers ebooks (downloadable digital books) through OverDrive. eBooks can be read on PC and Mac computers and a number of portable devices including ereaders, smartphones, and iPads.

To begin using this service, you will only need:

  • your Minuteman library card and PIN
  • a computer with Internet access or a compatible portable device such as a smartphone
  • and in most cases, free software - once you have downloaded the software, it needs to be authorized. Visit the My Help guide to learn how to authorize your software.

Now you are ready to download an ebook. Simply login to OverDrive and begin searching for a title.

If it is available, you can download it immediately. If it is currently checked out by another patron, you may place yourself on the waiting list and OverDrive will send you an email when it becomes available.
