Item Description

OverDrive Media Console gives you on-the-go access to eBooks and audiobooks from your public, school, or college library. More than 18,000 libraries worldwide offer best-selling and classic titles via OverDrive, so use the 'Get Books' feature in the app to find a library near you. 

With the launch of PlayBook OS 2.0, OverDrive Media Console now allows users to access digital titles on their BlackBerry tablets. The OMC app for PlayBook has the same great functionality seen on other platforms, allowing you to check out and download titles right from your device. All you have to do is make sure you install the most up-to-date firmware on your PlayBook, search for ‘OverDrive’ in App World then install the app. You’ll be listening to audiobooks or reading eBooks in no time.

PlayBook OS 2.0 makes the BlackBerry tablet even more appealing than it was before. If you’re currently in the market for such a device, but are on the fence, the PlayBook is a solid choice. Priced around $200 to $250, this 7-inch tablet offers more features than much of its similarly priced competition. You get dual cameras (front and back), 16GB (or more) of storage and a beautiful screen.  It even comes with a neoprene sleeve!

Welcome to the family, PlayBook!

Download eBooks and audiobooks from your library directly to your BlackBerry!

How do library eBooks and audiobooks work? 

Digital titles from your library are borrowed just like print material. Once you find your library using 'Get Books', you can browse your library's digital collection on the web, check out a title with a valid library card, and download the title directly to your BlackBerry. 

Each EPUB eBook and MP3 audiobook that you check out has a lending period. While borrowing the digital title, you can enjoy it using the app's eBook reader or audiobook player. The title automatically expires in the app at the end of the lending period, so there's never a late fee. There's even a handy countdown clock built into the app so you know how long you have to read or listen before the title expires.

What happens if a digital title is already checked out?

Just like with physical material from the library, you can join a waiting list.  All you need to do is enter your email address and you'll receive an alert when the title is available for check out.

Don't want to wait? Many libraries offer thousands of EPUB eBook downloads that are always available. Just check for the 'Additional eBooks' link at the bottom of the digital collection homepage and you can get a free eBook from your library that's yours to keep—without a lending period. You'll discover timeless books and find yourself reading more than ever before with this diverse collection.

You can also download DRM-free EPUB eBooks from other online sources and read them in the OverDrive Media Console app.

Want more books? 

Each library builds a custom digital collection of eBooks and audiobooks specifically for their local community. Contact your library and let them know that you are using OverDrive on your BlackBerry and would like to see additional titles in the digital collection.
