Did I get your attention? Want to get free books? There’s a simple way to get them by downloading the OverDrive and Hoopla applications on your cell phone. You can also access their website online in order to read or listen on your computer at www.overdrive.com and www.hoopladigital.com. These applications are available for both Android and iPhone, allowing you to borrow digital audiobooks and ebooks for up to 21 days from your local library. All you need is the application and a library card. Pretty great, right?
Depending on your library, the OverDrive app even has magazines, newspapers, and videos you can borrow. This application also works for Kindle, Kobo, Nook, iPad, and iPod as well. That way you can enjoy perusing your favorite magazine and/or newspaper or even watch a movie on your preferred device. Of course, you can borrow audiobooks and ebooks to your heart’s content (up to 10 or 15 at a time). If your library doesn’t carry what you’re looking for, you can always recommend it to be purchased and get notified when it’s been added to the selection of available books or video.
Let’s not forget Hoopla! This is the other library app which carries audiobooks, ebooks, comic books, movies, music and tv shows. They don’t provide as many choices as OverDrive when it comes to audio and ebooks, but they do have a vast amount of videos and music. They are constantly expanding their collection and the selection of comic books is growing at a steady pace. This app is only available for Android, iPhone, iPad, iPod, and Kindle. Again, all you need is your library card to gain access to all this digital goodness. So, what are you waiting for? Click on the links above to get your account and start borrowing titles!
