What's New in NH Downloadable Books

Overdrive and NH Downloadable Books make enhancements to their site and app, and we want to help keep you informed.

NH Downloadable Books blog has notes on new updates.

One new feature is the automatic check out to your account when books become available. Look at the options in the Overdrive app to turn this off, if you what to have more control over when you get books. It can increase our library's costs if unwanted check-outs are used, but it can be handy if you're really excited about getting a title.
