How to get started

Renmark High School library now has a small but growing collection of downloadable eBooks and audiobooks which can be downloaded to your compatible eReader, smart device (including Apple and Android devices), mp3 player, computer and laptop anytime, 24 hours a day.
 
Please Note: Kindle eReader & some other eReaders are NOT compatible with this service. To check out compatible devices click here.
 
You will need:  
  • A borrower barcode (students : the barcode beginning with B0794 on either your student ID card or in your diary. Staff : barcode beginning with B0794 and followed by your ED ID with the last number left off.)
  • Internet access (for the initial download)
  • A compatible device as listed above.
There are 2 options to access eBooks and audiobooks:  
  • OverDrive Read - if you prefer to simply open an eBook using an internet browser and start reading. No need to install ‘download software’ or ‘app' (recommend using your home computer and not a school computer).
     
  • Install download software or an app - if you prefer to download an eBook or audiobook to your device (computer, smart device or EReader) you will need to download and install the free Overdrive ‘app’.
