While it is possible to open some eBooks immediately in your device's web browser using OverDrive READ, other eBooks and audiobooks require a free software download in order to complete the process. From the OverDriveHelp page on the eLibraryNJ site, scroll to the "Get Started With" section and click on your device for instruction on how to proceed. On the same page, you can view videos to further acquaint yourself with eLibraryNJ and review frequently asked questions. Please be aware that you may not use the Library's computers to download eBooks and audiobooks.
If your library card is in good standing, you may check out a total of 5 digital eBooks and audiobooks at once. Materials are loaned for 7, 14, or 21 days. At the end of the loan period, the title expires and the item is automatically checked back in.
If all system copies are in use, it is possible to place a hold on a title. You may have up to 5 holds. When the book becomes available, you will receive an email indicating that it is ready for download. You then have 3 days to activate this checkout. If you do not download within the 3 days, you will forfeit your place in the queue for that title.
