OVERDRIVE: Downloadable eBooks and Audiobooks
eBooks are the electronic version of
printed books which can be viewed on a desktop computer,
laptop, smartphone, or e-book reader. Audiobooks are
voice recordings that you can listen to rather than
reading the text of a book or other type of publication.
Audiobooks can be an exact word-for-word version of
a book or a shortened (abridged) recording.
The library uses Overdrive to deliver eBooks
to students and faculty. Overdrive is the
system all the public libraries use, so if you have
borrowed books from Jericho Public
you already know how to use it!
All of our eBooks and audiobooks are listed in Destiny,
our catalog. Here are instructions for logging in:
