OverDrive eBooks now available on Kindle!

AADL card holders can now check out OverDrive ebooks onto Kindle. Read Amazon's announcement for the scoop.

To get started, browse the OverDrive collection. Find an eBook you're interested in and add it to your cart. While in your cart you’ll then click on “Get for Kindle” and will be directed to Amazon.com. (This requires logging into your Kindle account at Amazon, if you’re not already logged in.) You can then read the book on your Kindle device or the Kindle app for smartphones or computers! Use OverDrive's MyHelp if you run into any trouble, or contact us if you have any other questions.

For more information on eBooks at AADL, for Kindle and other devices, see our dedicated eBooks page, with links to where you’ll find answers to your questions.


Thanks. That was really helpful.

This doesn't appear to work at a terminal inside the downtown library. I get this error message:

Hi Ed, thanks for mentioning this, we've fixed that problem.

Clicking on the "OverDrive collection" link was working the other day but currently, the link looks dead (or perhaps the site is down?). It leads to a dlink search page at this point in time.


Is there some other way to access ebooks from the AADL?
