Libraries Add More eBooks, including Kindle format
Posted Date: 9/17/2013

The Grand Prairie Public Library System is proud to add to its eBranch collection of eBooks with more best-selling and classic eBooks, available 24/7 from the library’s new Overdrive digital site, available at http://gptx.lib.overdrive.com, or via the Library's webpage at www.gptx.org/library.

You can browse the collection, borrow with your library card, and enjoy on your computer, tablet, smartphone or eReader device. Most borrowed eBooks can be enjoyed immediately in your web browser with OverDrive Read. Or, you can download eBooks into free software, Adobe® Digital Editions, or send to your Kindle® device or app. Downloaded eBooks can be transferred to eReader devices such as NOOK®, Sony® Reader™ and many more.

Users with smartphones or tablets can install the OverDrive Media Console app to directly download EPUB eBooks to their device. No matter how you plan to enjoy, titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period. There are no late fees!

With hundreds of popular fiction and non-fiction titles to choose from, this new collection is guaranteed to have something for everyone. You can enjoy best-selling novels, well-known classics, self-improvement guides, and much more all on your own time, wherever you may be.

This new service, powered by OverDrive, is free with your library card. To get started enjoying eBooks visit http://gptx.lib.overdrive.com.  You can find helpful tools and information, as well as a link to contact support.

Other Grand Prairie Library eBooks are available through the Freading and 3M platforms. These can also be accessed at http://www.gptx.org/library by selecting "eBranch".
