How to Check Out (and Return!) Library eBooks from OverDrive on Your Amazon Kindle

Or any Kindle application including the Cloud Reader. Having gone through this process myself I can say it is almost like magic, especially compared to the pain and suffering that is Adobe Digital Editions. Enjoy!

How to find library ebooks for your Kindle at the High Planes Library District*

This slideshow from the Wake County Public Libraries shows how to return a book early if you’re done or decide you don’t like it.

*most tutorials are specific to the library that made them, your website and options will vary.

  1. Thanks for sharing. Also once I returned/deleted it I received an email from Amazon saying “Your public library loan has ended”. Nice confirmation.

  4. The High Planes Library video is quite comprehensive, but unfortunately, there are some omissions and mis-information. 1.) There is an time and frustration-saving option to filter the search to “only show titles with copies available” which can be done in the same Advanced Search screen where the format is selected, or it can be used after the fact to filter the results. 2) Kindle books are NOT the only books that can be returned early. All the EPUB and PDF ebooks downloaded via Adobe Digital Editions can be returned early from within that software. I would also suggest referring potential users to the official Overdrive video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mgKbyhuqxuU

    I keep wondering, why can’t eBooks for the Nook, etc., currently using ADE, instead use a method more like the Kindle? Okay, I sort of know the answer, but seriously, why can’t OD move toward this as a model? So much easier, so much more intuitive for patrons, esp. those who already work with the Kindle.
