OverDrive Service Now Available at Library

Are you one of the lucky people who received a digital reader for your holiday gift? If so, you may want to investigate the growing collection of e-books available for borrowing through the Bridgewater Public Library.


As a library patron, you have access to the OverDrive Service, an online service allowing downloading of eAudio and eBook titles to your personal computer or another device. OverDrive works with: Barnes & Noble Nook; Sony Reader; Kobo eReader; PanDigital Novel with firmware update; Windows desktop, laptop & netbook computers with Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP SP2, Windows 2000SP4; Mac desktop & laptop computers with Mac OS X v10.6, v10.5 & v10.4.10; Apple iPhone and Android.


To review a listing of available digital titles, go to http://sails.lib.overdrive.com. To borrow e-Books, e-Audio, and music, you will need a library card. You may apply for a card during regular library hours, which are: Monday 4-8; Tuesday 1-8; Wednesday 10-5; Thursday 9-5; Saturday 10-2. The library locks its doors ten minutes before closing for security reasons.


Please bring a photo ID and proof of residence if you are applying for a new card.
