The Overdrive Digital Download Center is a one stop resource center for digital downloads of all formats. Digital Audiobooks, digital electronic books, digital video downloads and digital music are all available through this one site. The downloads work on a variety of formats including PCs or Macs, smart phones, iPods and MP3 players and even Sony e-book readers including the Nook.
The Overdrive Digital Download Center (dbooks) is brought to you by our library, working with our local Eastern Shores Library System with other state library systems in the Wisconsin Public Library Consortium (WPLC). This is why the web address looks like it does.
