THE eLIBRARY NJ WEBSITE WAS RECENTLY RE-DESIGNED, AND USERS SHOULD BE AWARE OF THE FOLLOWING CHANGES:
Are you dyslexic, or do you have a dyslexic child? The most recent version of the OverDrive app includes the option to select a dyslexic font when reading eBooks! Standard typefaces are often difficult to read for people with dyslexia as the letters are hard to differentiate and words tend to jumble together. Dyslexic fonts provide greater contrast in letters which solves this problem.
You can also view the eLibrary NJ website with a Dyslexic font display. Just go to 'SETTINGS' and choose your preferred display options.
Click here to download the latest version of Overdrive Media Console, which works with a variety of devices such as iPhone®, iPad®, Android (including NOOK & Kobo), Chromebook, Windows Phone, Windows 8 & 10, and Kindle Fire HD; download links are at the bottom of the page. CLICK HERE for a list of COMPATIBLE DEVICES.
The Freading™ eBook Service allows us to increase the size and diversity of our collection by providing access to tens of thousands of books for free download! Freading offers eBooks in a wide range of genres & subjects, including Fiction & Literature, Biography & Autobiography, Business & Economics, Comics & Graphic Novels, Computers, Crafts & Hobbies, Foreign Language Study, Health & Fitness, History, House & Home, Juvenile & Young Adult books, Self-Help, Travel Guides, Spark Notes Study Guides, and more! Freading eBooks are available in ePUB format and/or PDF (most titles are available in one of these formats, some are available in both).

You may borrow up to 3 Freading titles per week - Freading no longer uses tokens. In the upper right corner of the site, you will see 'weekly limit' counter, showing how many titles you have checked out. For example, if you have used two of your three weekly titles, the counter will say 2/3. If you have used up all your allotted loans for the week, you will be unable to download additional books, but you will be able to queue up for the following week to do so.
Unused book loans roll over to the following week. Every 4 weeks, unused book loans expire. An individual loan is for 2 weeks and may be renewed for an additional 2 weeks. Click here for Freading FAQ.
Computer users: be sure to OPEN rather than SAVE eBooks when downloading from Freading.
NOTE: On PCs, Adobe Digital Editions will automatically create a 'My Digital Editions' folder in your 'My Documents' folder. Your eBooks will be downloaded to this folder. THERE IS NO WAY TO MOVE THIS FOLDER OR DOWNLOAD BOOKS TO A DIFFERENT LOCATION ON YOUR PC.
