eBooks and eAudiobooks

Overdrive with South Island Downloadable Zone

e-books and e-audiobooks are free for Gore and Mataura library members.

You need a computer, tablet or mobile device with a modern web browser. Download with either EPUB or PDF format, but for other formats install OverDrive Media Console or Adobe Digital Editions. Alternately you can start reading or listening to your title in your browser straight away but you must be connected to the internet.

Please note that Kindle is not readily compatible with library e-books.

Click on 'sign in' and select Gore Libraries from the list. Sign in with your library card number, using lower case for the initial letter. The default pin is l1brary (1 instead of an i)
