Indiana Digital Download Center is our growing consortium's online presence at OverDrive. The consortium is comprised of 8 libraries that are pooling funds to purchase digital content for their patrons.
Tippecanoe County Public Library is also in an OverDrive consortium but we felt that it would give our patrons, including our reciprocal borrowers, access to more materials if we joined the other Indiana OverDrive consortium.
OverDrive recently released an OverDrive 2.0 apps for iPhone and Android, which adds support for eBooks from our library. Now you can download both EPUB eBooks and MP3 audiobooks directly to your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad or Android phone/tablet. New users can search for "OverDrive Media Console" in the Apple App Store and Android Market, while current users will be alerted to update the existing OverDrive app on their devices.
