eBooks can also be transferred to popular e-reading devices like the Sony® Reader and the Barnes & Noble nook™. Many eBooks feature reflowable text which allows a user to resize the text and alter the display to fit any screen size. The Sony Reader and the nook are designed to look and feel like a book and are great for users on the go. The devices feature E INK technology, a screen that reads like paper so it’s easy on the reader’s eyes. 

“eBooks are growing in popularity and we are excited to offer this new format in addition to thousands of audiobooks currently available. We have purchased hundreds of best-selling and classic titles, all of which can be read on your computer or compatible portable reading device.” 

To check out eBooks or audiobooks, users need a valid library card, computer, and Internet connection. Once downloaded, digital media can be enjoyed on a computer and transferred to popular devices such as MP3 players, iPods®, Smartphones, and more. At the end of the lending period, titles automatically expire and are returned to the collection. Users may return eBooks early.

Shellsburg Public Library partners with OverDrive, Inc. (www.overdrive.com), a global leader in digital media services, to offer the download service.
