Download ebooks to your iPad with the app

Have you been anxiously waiting for the chance to download ebooks to your iPad? We’ve got some great news—the OverDrive Media Console app, which is optimized for iPads, has just been released! Use the app to download thousands of bestselling ebooks and audiobooks from the Ohio eBook Project collection to your iPad.

Once you’ve downloaded the app, find the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County using the app’s “Get Books” feature, then browse for titles, check them out with your library card, and download them directly to the iPad. Features include the ability to customize your eBook reading experience with brightness and text-size controls and create bookmarks. The app also supports landscape and portrait orientation and a calendar icon displays the number of days left until the title expires. The eBook and audiobook titles from the library automatically expire in the app, so no late fees!

The free app is available in the App Store, and can be installed on Apple devices running iOS v4.0 (or newer).
