Overdrive eBooks for Kindle

Downloading eBooks to your Kindle is easy!

Log in to OverDrive, browse or search for a title available for Kindle and check it out. Click the Get for Kindle and a new window will open to Amazon.com. If you are not already logged in with your Amazon account you will need to do that before you can click the "download" link. The item will download to your Kindle the next time it has wireless access, or you can download it manually using the USB/Charging cord.
