The Daily Item

— MIFFLINBURG — Readers can now get instant access to free eBooks with one click onto any device — including tablets, eReaders, smartphones, and laptops — using OverDrive Read™ part of The Next Generation Experience.

OverDrive Read™ is a new browser-based technology that requires no software or downloading and allows readers to go from one device to another without ever losing their place. Available titles can be downloaded to a device or users can choose to begin reading right away in the web browser.

Along with OverDrive Read™ The Next Generation Experience also features One-Step Checkout™, new responsive design compatible with both mobile and desktop devices, and new discovery tools providing better search options.

Sarah Biallas, UCLS AmeriCorps member, is offering a program on the new OverDrive features at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 16 at the Herr Memorial Library. This program is free and open to all library patrons.
