Borrowing eBooks from the library just got a whole lot easier for users of the NOOK HD, NOOK HD+, NOOK Tablet™ and NOOK Color™. Last week, Barnes & Noble added the OverDrive Media Console app to the NOOK Apps™ storefront. This NOOK app enables users to wirelessly borrow eBooks audiobooks from the library.
All NOOK devices, including NOOK 1st Edition, NOOK Simple Touch and NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight, have always enabled users to read eBooks borrowed from libraries and schools, but the process required sideloading the files from a computer using Adobe Digital Editions and a USB cable. Now users of NOOK HD, NOOK HD+, NOOK Tablet and NOOK Color can borrow eBooks wirelessly using the OverDrive app.
Users can visit the NOOK Apps storefront to install the free OverDrive Media Console (OMC) app. The app enables users to locate their library, browse or search their eBook collection and, after entering a valid library card number, check out and download the title for a lending period of one to three weeks. At the end of the lending period, the title simply expires.
