Do You Own a Kindle?
Library eBooks for the Kindle are here!
And checking them out is as easy as pie!
Checking out eBook for Kindles is just like all other OverDrive materials. All browsing, searching, and checkout features of eBook titles will remain the same at the Listen Up Vermont website. When you get to the final step you’ll be directed to click on “Get for Kindle” link. You will then be directed to Amazon.com to complete your public library loan. You may be required to login to your Amazon.com account — or create a new account — if you’re not already logged in.
Choose to read the book on your Kindle device, free reading app, or Kindle Cloud Reader. The new update allows most existing OverDrive eBooks to be read on all Kindle devices or by using free Kindle apps on iPhone®, iPad®, Android™, and other mobile devices. (a few titles may not be compatible for a bit. You can read borrowed Kindle books on any generation Kindle device or all free Kindle apps, as well as in your web browser with Kindle Cloud Reader.
There will now only be one format. Instead of ePub, PDF and Kindle formats you will only see the one format: eBook. Each eBook unit will provide you access to all available eBook formats for that title. You will choose the format compatible with your eReader or device.
For example, if Listen Up! Vermont has three total copies of The Help in any eBook format, The Help will show three copies, available for use with Kindle and all devices that support EPUB or PDF.
OverDrive Kindle books from your library are only permitted for the patron who checked out the title.
Note: Public library books require an active Wi-Fi connection for wireless delivery to a Kindle device. Library books will not be delivered via your Kindle’s 3G connection. If you wish to send a book to a Kindle device and you do not have an active Wi-Fi connection, you may instead choose to load your library book via USB. Both Mac and Windows users can manage Kindle content through a USB connection.
