ebooks

Want to use that ereader you got for Christmas to check out library books? Here’s how you can do it!

The Tulsa library has access to two separate services, Overdrive and Freading, that can be used to download ebooks and digital audiobooks on your ereader, tablet, computer, or smart phone. To get started, first go to our Ebooks, Audiobooks and More page. On this page, you’ll find four boxes.

Now you can read library ebooks in your browser without having to install additional software!

If you’ve wanted to try out the library’s ebook collection but have been wary of signing up for new accounts or dealing with downloads, then check out a recent change to our digital collection that has simplified the process. With the addition of the new Overdrive READ service, many of our eBook titles can now be read right in your web browser with no additional software to install.

The library has added another eBook service. Take a look at Freading!

Freading is a new eBook provider available to Tulsa County library users. With over 22,000 books available through this resource, Freading greatly expands your digital reading options. And the best part is that all titles on Freading are always available, which means no holds and no waiting lists. Check out the Freading home page to browse for your next read.

Where on the new website can I find the library's help page for the ebooks and downloadable audio books?
