Do you miss thumbing through a book while browsing the Library shelves for a good read?

Introducing OverDrive Read samples to our eMedia Catalog. What is browser-based eReading technology? It allows you to sample and browse our library’s EPUB titles with no downloads, device activation or software installation required.

Click a book jacket to view OverDrive Read sample.
Later this year, you will be able to borrow full titles using OverDrive Read. The browser-based technology provides new, efficient ways for publishers and authors to promote titles.  Because each eBook “sample” has a unique URL, you can share titles via social media and other online channels by sending or posting links.

OverDrive Read is compatible with most computers and devices that use a modern web browser, including tablets, laptops and smartphones. Check out samples of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” and “Game of Thrones” to see how OverDrive Read mimics the experience of thumbing through a title at the library or bookstore.
