Read books on your phone!

Do you have an iPhone or Droid? Did you know you can read library books from your phone using Overdrive and your library card?

Earlier this month, it was announced that Overdrive has an app to allow you to check out and read books using your iPhone or Droid. Overdrive is a free app from the app store or market, and once you have that downloaded, you should be ready to go. Be sure to check all the system requirements, though. You may need to sign up for a free Adobe account to get the app to work on your phone.

You will need your library card number and pin (the number you use to put items on hold and/or log on to the Internet computers) and voila you can check out books to your phone for free.

Overdrive has a great selection of YA titles you can check out such as If I Fall by Lauren Oliver, The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff and many other titles for you to browse, and check out.

I'll see you @ the library!
