[ARCHIVED] OverDrive Announces Compatibility with Amazon's Kindle

The Roanoke County Public Library is excited to announce that its eBook collection is now compatible with the world’s bestselling eBook reader – the Amazon® Kindle. Patrons can now download popular and classic eBooks to a Kindle device or any mobile device running the free Kindle app, such as iPhone®, iPad®, Android™, and more. To get started, visit the OverDrive collection website.

Kindle users can browse the collection of bestselling and classic eBooks from a PC or Mac computer, check out titles using a library card, and select “Get for Kindle” to deliver eBooks to their Kindle device or any device running the free Kindle app. Users who enjoy eBooks on Kindle will benefit from Amazon’s Whispersync technology that synchronizes notes, highlights, and last page read between their Kindle and free Kindle apps.

The library is anticipating a high demand for eBooks, so patrons are encouraged to take advantage of the “Always Available” eBooks with no need for holds. The library will continue to build its eBook collection so check back for more titles.
