Library eBooks - not on Kindle in Canada yet - Updated June 14
With the release of the new android-based Kindle Fire it is now possible to install the OverDrive Media Console app and download ebooks and eaudiobooks from the library. Please note that this still does not apply to traditional Kindle eReaders. For more information please see our Kindle Fire user guide.
You may have seen some of the news coverage and online buzz about libraries offering Kindle-compatible eBooks through the OverDrive service. Kindle-compatible eBooks for libraries are a new service that just launched yesterday (September 21) in the U.S. only.
Unfortunately, Kindle-compatible eBooks are not yet an option for Canadian libraries.
Toronto Public Library will continue to monitor developments in this area. In the meantime, the EPUB eBooks available through our OverDrive service are compatible with a range of eReaders, tablets, and smartphones, including:
- Sony Reader
- Samsung Galaxy
- Motorola Xoom
See the complete list of compatible devices on OverDrive’s site.
