eBooks + audiobooks

How to borrow eBooks and audiobooks:

  • First, you’ll need to have an existing account with the Rowdy. Come in and see us if you don’t.
  • Download the free Overdrive app from the app store. Overdrive works with all ‘smart’ devices (except some Kindles), and will work on your desktop too. For some titles you might need Adobe Reader, if you don’t already have it.
  • Once the app’s installed, search for “Rowden White Library” in it.
  • Sign in using the barcode on your card and the PIN/password you set up with us (the one you use to renew and place holds online)

The terms of the loan are the same as for IRL books (3 weeks) and you can have up to 8 e-books (in addition to irl items). There’s no need to return items as they will automatically be returned, however you can renew them or return them early if you wish.
