OverDrive, a distributor of ebooks for libraries and schools, announced the release of the free OverDrive Media Console app for NOOK, making it easier for users to borrow ebooks and audiobooks from libraries and schools. With the new OverDrive app, users of NOOK HD, NOOK HD+, NOOK Tablet and NOOK Color can wirelessly borrow ebooks and MP3 audiobooks from the library.
Users can visit the NOOK Store to install the free OverDrive Media Console app. The app enables users to locate a library or school nearby, browse or search their ebook collection and, after entering a valid library card or school ID, check out and download the title for a lending period of one to three weeks. At the end of the lending period, the title simply expires. For more information, you can go to www.NOOK.com/publiclibrary or www.overdriveblogs.com.
