Overdrive!

Hello all,

As I'm sure many of you are aware, Sheldon has recently acquired the new Overdrive program for e-book reading. What this means to you is, if you download the Overdrive app, either from the App Store, or the Playstore, you will be able to read new books right off of your tablet or mobile device. There are lots of great new books to choose from, and you also have access to Project Gutenberg, which will allow you to read classic literature, lots of Shakespeare,and much more! Come see Ms. Lane for more information on how to download Overdrive onto your device, or read the instructions below.
