Knowles Library Summer LibGuide


We are excited to announce the arrival of OverDrive, a software that allows you to download eBooks and audiobooks to a mobile device.

Who: At this time, we provide logins for students and faculty.

When: During library time, students in grades 3-5 viewed a demonstration on how to use this wonderful resource. Directions on how to access and use OverDrive are found in the links below for students who did not receive the training. There are books for all grade levels including picture books. Students use their computer login to access OverDrive. The first step is to download the OverDrive app. If you have any questions, email the Knowles Librarian denae.gerik@leanderisd.org

Where: To access OverDrive, go to http://digitallibrary.leanderisd.org

How Many: Patrons can check out up to 2 books for a 2 week period. EBooks will automatically return after 2 weeks, but students can turn them in earlier if they are finished reading.

Nook and Overdrive

OverDrive App Comes to Nook


Borrowing eBooks and audiobooks from the library just got a whole lot easier for users of the NOOK HD, NOOK HD+, NOOK Tablet™ and NOOK Color™. Last week, Barnes & Noble added the OverDrive Media Console app to the NOOK Apps™ storefront. This NOOK app enables users to wirelessly borrow eBooks and MP3 audiobooks from the library.


All NOOK devices, including NOOK 1st Edition, NOOK Simple Touch and NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight, have always enabled users to read eBooks borrowed from libraries and schools, but the process required sideloading the files from a computer using Adobe Digital Editions and a USB cable. Now users of NOOK HD, NOOK HD+, NOOK Tablet and NOOK Color can borrow eBooks and audiobooks wirelessly using the OverDrive app.


Users can visit the NOOK Apps storefront to install the free OverDrive Media Console (OMC) app. The app enables users to locate a library or school nearby, browse or search their eBook and MP3 audiobook collection and, after entering a valid library card or school ID,  check out and download the title for a lending period of one to three weeks (depending on the library or school's policies). At the end of the lending period, the title simply expires.


The version of OMC available in the NOOK Apps storefront is OMC for Android v2.5, so any instructions found on library Help pages related to OMC for Android will apply to the NOOK app. While the app is free, users will need a valid NOOK account in order to download the app.
