Borrowing OverDrive eBooks and Audiobooks on Android Devices, including NOOK and Kindle Fire

Updated January 2015: icon This handout is for people who have devices running the Android operating system, such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab, the new Nook Tablet (which is really just a co-branded Samsung Galaxy Tab), or any other device that runs the Android operating system. In fact, this can even be used with the Kindle Fire family of devices, since they run Android too. We have a collection of both eBooks and audiobooks available through the OverDrive catalog; these can be downloaded directly to your device without even connecting to a computer.

Borrowing OverDrive eBooks Using Amazon e-Ink Kindles

Updated January 2015: Yes, we have library eBooks for your Amazon Kindle! They are available from the OverDrive Downloadables catalog. icon This handout is specifically written for people who are using Amazon’s classic eInk readers like the basic Kindle, the Kindle Paperwhite, and the Kindle Voyage. It will take you through the steps to select, checkout, and download books from OCPL's OverDrive catalog. (Sorry, downloadable eBooks from the 3M Cloud library for Amazon eInk Kindles such as the Paperwhite are not currently provided.)

Printing from Mobile Devices - use the library!

Scanning Documents at the Liverpool Public Library

I think that the scanner is one of the best inventions of the personal computer era. With it, I’m able to take
photos and documents that would’ve taken many file drawers to store, and put them into a nice compact format
that I can store on my computer and reproduce almost perfectly later on. But there are a few things you need to
know before you get started with our scanners, and that’s what icon this handout is all about.

Facing Facebook

Have you been avoiding using Facebook? And yet…do you realize that you’re missing out on being connected with far-flung friends and family members by not being a Facebook user? Then icon this is the handout for you!
