Thinking about e-Book devices for Christmas?

Christmas is looming large and I know there are many of you out there thinking about purchasing e-book devices. This is where we can help! Our OverDrive service is free for library members and contains over 10,000 e-book and downloadable audiobook titles just for you.

We also have a list of devices we know are compatible with the OverDrive service. So before you start shopping make sure your portable device is on the above list!

One of the more popular e-Readers are Kindles. The Kindle e-Reader from Amazon does not support Overdrive titles available from New Zealand libraries. It would prefer you to buy from Amazon. At the moment there is a trial programme in the United States between OverDrive and Amazon but it is unlikely to be available in New Zealand anytime soon.

On a positive note the Kindle Fire tablet is compatible with our collection.

So happy shopping this Christmas and feel free to pop into your local library to escape charging shoppers and Christmas music!
