Reading E-Books just got easier. Overdrive Read is the Next Generation Digital Library Platform provided by the Libraries of Middlesex as ELibraryNJ. Say good-bye to downloading software and authorizing IDs . You can read your E-Books in your browser on your computer, iPad, iPod, iPhone or Android.
Go to our webpage and click on E-Books. Sign In and select the Libraries of Middlesex Automation Consortium as your library, enter your library card number and PIN. Contact us for help if you are unsure of these.
Just point to a book cover to see if it is available and then click on it. Click on the Borrow button to check it out. When you are ready to read it click Go to Bookshelf and choose Read (in your Browser). If you want to read the book offline remember to use your browsers Bookmark command. This way you can read it without Internet access. Click here and learn more about Overdrive Read and try a sample.
Overdrive Read is available for iOS 5.o or higher and Android 2.3. The NOOK and original Kindle Fire use custom browsers. Overdrive is currently working on adding support for both, so keep checking back for updates.
Try it and let us know how you like it.
