Non-Kindle eReaders


The library is currently revising these ebook tutorials. As revisions are complete tutorial links will become active. We hope to have revisions completed in June 2013. Thank you for your patience. In the meantime, help instructions are available on the OverDrive website. Or consult these OverDrive help videos.

Use the following step-by-step tutorials to learn how to get a library eBook onto your particular Non-Kindle eReader.

The following readers require the use of a personal computer and involve a tethered transfer to the device


Nook Simple Touch

NOTE:It is now also possible to get books on the Nook Color without using a computer. Please refer to the section on Multi-use devices utilizing the OverDrive Media Console app.

NOTE:The Sony WiFi is a dedicated eReader in a class of its own as it does not require a computer in order to look for and borrow library eBooks. Everything happens right on the reader. This reader cannot read Kindle books.
