H-APP-y Reading!

Guest post by Jean Anderson

Do you need to have a dedicated e-reader like a NOOK, Kobo, or Kindle to enjoy books from the Wisconsin's Digital Library (powered by OverDrive)? What if I have an iPad - regular or mini, a Nexus 7 or the new Microsoft Surface tablet. Does that mean I can’t check out library ebooks?

Woohoo! The answer is no! You can enjoy ebooks and audiobooks from the Wisconsin's Digital Library by downloading and installing the OverDrive app from the app store for your device. The OverDrive app is available for lots of different mobile devices as well as your desktop PC or Mac.

If you have a NOOK Color, NOOK Tablet, or the new NOOK HD or HD+, there’s finally an OverDrive app for Nook. This means no more connecting your NOOK to your PC to transfer an ebook. Turn on your wireless, find and check out an ebook, download it directly to your NOOK, and read!

The same is true for the Kindle Fire. Check out the Amazon App Store for the Android OverDrive app to make it easier to get books from the Wisconsin's Digital Library onto your Kindle Fire.

Check out the Device Resource Center to make sure the device on your wish list is compatible with OverDrive and H-APP-Y Reading!
