OverDrive, the service the Cedar Rapids Public Library uses for ebooks, has just announced the release of a BlackBerry App that will allow direct library ebook downloads. This free application is available on the OverDrive website.
Recently, OverDrive released an application for iPads. This easy to use media console allows people to download ebooks directly to their iPad. OverDrive is also compatible with Android and iPhone, as well as Windows Mobile 5 or 6.
Ebooks are increasingly popular among all age groups. The Cedar Rapids Public Library regularly updates the collection of offerings so that customers have access to what they want as quickly as possible. Not all publishing companies allow libraries to lend ebooks, so not all book titles are available. If there is a title you would like to see added to the collection, please contact the Library.
