If you've got a smartphone, eReader, or tablet, your Abilene Public Library offers free access to popular digital eBooks & audiobooks. If not, kick your habits into the digital age by taking our OverDrive services for a test drive.
As one of the leading American distributors of digital content, OverDrive offers the easiest way to access great reading materials at home or on-the-go. Compatible with the leading devices on the market, OverDrive is like having a portable public library of books that fits into your pocket or bag.
OverDrive is 100% free to use, but you'll need a valid library card. Each card affords you with 10 total checkout at any one time. Since these items will return themselves, you'll never have to worry about late fees.
Your Abilene Public Library has worked hard to build a great collection of popular materials for all ages and reading tastes. We also share an account with Tom Green County Library System in San Angelo, providing you with access to items they add and practically doubling the collection you have access to.
If there's something you want that we don't have, Contact Me and let me know. I can take your request and if it's available for purchase in the OverDrive catalog, we're able to acquire a copy that will be available within 24-hours of purchase. It's really that fast!
Although getting started on OverDrive might seem intimidating, staff is on hand to assist you. Our Instructional Guides are available on our blog, which you may view, download, or print. All are designed to help you get started, but if you need additional assistance, feel free to Contact Me.
OverDrive has been an extremely popular service, available 24/7, whether the library is physically open or not. With thousands of titles to peruse, don't pass up on your chance to be a part of this trending service and start downloading great items today!
