Update for OverDrive Users: Kindle Fire Now in Canada and Compatible with Library eBooks

June 14, 2013 | Margot | Comments (12)


The Kindle Fire is hot off the presses in Canada and it's the first Kindle compatible with OverDrive library ebooks and eaudiobooks from Canadian libraries.  Unlike traditional Kindles (which still are not compatible with library ebooks in Canada), the Fire is an android-based tablet which allows you to download the free OverDrive Media Console app in order to access library material.  All you need is your Amazon account information (used to set up your new device), an Adobe ID and your Toronto Public Library Card. See our Kindle Fire guide to find out just how easy it is to start reading or listening to books from the library. 

Staff from the Toronto Public Library's eServices team talk about recent changes, future plans and ideas and issues you raise about the library's online and mobile services.
