So what are eBooks and eAudiobooks? An eBook is a digital full-text version of a book that can be read on a computer or a digital device. An eAudiobook is digital recording of a book, similar to Books on CDs. The Davenport Public Library subscribes to several services which supply eBooks, eAudiobooks, and additional digital media for check-out:
RiverShare Digital Library: All you need to access eBooks & eAudiobooks from RiverShare is your Davenport Public Library card. Tutorials on how to download to different devices and how to add the RiverShare Digital Library to existing Overdrive Media Console Apps coming soon!
Attention WILBOR users: The Davenport Public Library now offers Overdrive's services through the RiverShare Digital Library instead of WILBOR. Your Davenport Public Library card will no longer work on the WILBOR website, and you may need to update your Overdrive App's My Libraries setting to select RiverShare Library System. If you have any questions, please contact the Reference Desk by phone at 563-326-7832 ext. 31 or by email at.
Recorded Books One Click Digital: Use your Davenport Public Library card to access Recorded Books One Click Digital eAudiobooks. Recorded Books eAudiobooks are compatible with many listening devices, including smartphones and tablets.
Zinio: Zinio provides a quick and easy way for Davenport Public Library patrons to read digital copies of their favorite magazines. To get started with Zinio, you'll want to set up both a Library Collection Account and a Zinio.com Viewer Account (we suggest using the same email/password for both accounts).
