Bor­row free li­brary ebooks

Over­Drive brings you ebooks and au­dio­books from your lo­cal li­brary

Mac Format - - IMPROVE -

Save your­self a trip to your lo­cal li­brary by bor­row­ing books us­ing your iPad

Over­Drive doesn’t get a lot of at­ten­tion, but it’s a musthave app for pretty much any­one who has ever picked up a book. It takes a few min­utes to get it set up prop­erly, but it’s well worth the ef­fort as this hid­den gem of an app al­lows you to bor­row free ebooks and au­dio­books from your lo­cal li­brary.

Over­Drive is free to down­load from the App Store, and there’s no charge for bor­row­ing books – you don’t even have to worry about pay­ing a fine for over­due books as the app au­to­mat­i­cally deletes your books at the end of the loan pe­riod.

The screen size of an iPad or iPad mini is ideal for read­ing ebooks that you down­load with Over­Drive, and it can also be used it to lis­ten to au­dioooks on an iPhone while trav­el­ling. There’s an Over­Drive app for Macs too, which can come in handy for stu­dents or teach­ers who need to do a bit of re­search in the class­room. The only catch is that you need to be a mem­ber of your lo­cal li­brary in or­der to use it. Cliff Joseph
