eBooks are books that you download to a computer, tablet, eReader, phone or other electronic device.  That device shows the pages that you read. 

You can download eBooks from the New Hampshire Downloadable Books Overdrive site or from the Hoopla site.

You can borrow a Kindle from the library with over 100 titles pre-loaded.

 Overdrive Advantage eBooks

The library has purchased extra copies of these eBooks solely for Dover patrons.  While we don't guarantee that they will always be available (another Dover patron could have it checked out), your hold time will be much shorter than patrons from other libraries.  Sign in to Overdrive with your library card before you browse to see availability.
