E-Books and More

Downloadable books

NEW - If you have a Nook Color or Nook Tablet, please check the app store for the Overdrive Media Console app.  Install the app and use that.

If you have the newest Sony e-reader, Overdrive may already appear on your device.  If you have it, use it.

For all others, you must go to http://riezone.lib.overdrive.com and download Adobe Digital Editions software to your computer.  On the top of the page click on Help, then click on Applications, then choose Adobe Digital Editions.  When you download this software, it will ask you to create a username and password.  Remember this information.  When you register, you can choose whether or not you get newsletters from Adobe.

Use your computer at the http://riezone.lib.overdrive.com site to choose and checkout a book using your library card number without spaces.  Download the book.  Adobe Digital Editions should open automatically.  

In Adobe Digital Editions click on the library view, the picture in the upper left hand corner that looks like books standing on a shelf.  Plug your e-reader into your computer.  The first time you do this you will be asked to register your device.  Use the same username and password that you used when you installed the software.

Drag and drop the picture of the book onto the picture of your e-reader that will show up in the lower lefthand block.  You can now disconnect your device and read your book.

To return the book, open Adobe Digital Editions on your computer and hover over the cover picture of the book.  An arrow will appear giving you several options, one of which will be to return and delete the title.
