Downloadable Book Information
(You must click the Downloadable Books button on the left of this page to access the resources listed below)
With OverDrive, you can borrow and enjoy free eBooks, audiobooks, and more from your library's digital collection. All you need to get started is an internet connection and a library card.
In addition to the items available through Overdrive to all of the libraries in the Ramapo Catskill Library System (RCLS), be sure to take advantage of additional ebooks that our Library is purchasing through the Overdrive Advantage program.
Ebook purchases made through Overdrive Advantage are restricted to OUR patrons only. This should help to end some of the long wait times that you may have experienced when ordering ebooks that are available to all of the libraries in RCLS through Overdrive.
In order to see the OUR Overdrive Advantage selections, you must be signed in to Overdrive. To get to Overdrive, click on the Downloadable Books button on the left side of our home page.
There is a link to a list of the ebooks we have purchased through Overdrive Advantage on the Downloadable Books page. Click on the link to see if our Library has ebooks that interest you. You can then proceed to Overdrive, sign in and search for those titles. When you find them, they should reflect an orange "a" with a check mark next to it, which indicates that it is an Overdrive Advantage title.
Gale Virtual Reference Library
We have over 50 reference titles (encompassing over 200 volumes) that are available 24/7 with articles available to be downloaded to ereaders.
Just sign in with your library barcode on our Downloadable Books page and reference materials, previously available only at the Library, will be at your fingertips anywhere - no title is ever checked out! You can choose from eleven language translations and there is a Readspeaker application available to read to students, which is great for the auditory learner.
Sesame Street Ebooks
Sesame Street Ebooks are available in ebook, audio book, interactive ebook, and animated ebook format. Your child can read, listen, or play in many of the books. These books can also be accessed using an iPad; however, you cannot download them to ereaders.
E-Sebco is the newest addition to our growing e-book collection, which will give your child access to digital children’s non-fiction materials, which should prove very helpful with school assignments. All books in this collection can be used simultaneously by as many Greenwood Lake patrons as desired, don’t have to be checked in or out and don’t require internet access after the download.
