Downloadable ebooks

OverDrive

eBooks for adults and children are available to patrons of Chinook Arch member libraries with a valid library card.

If you are using a tablet, mobile device, or wi-fi-enabled eReader, you can borrow eBooks using your library card barcode and PIN with the OverDrive app (downloadable from the Apple App Store and Google Play). If you are using a dedicated eReader (such as a Kobo or NOOK), you will need to create a free Adobe ID and use Adobe Digital Editions to borrow eBooks. 

Additionally, the TumbleBook Library is an online collection of animated, talking picture books for kids in English, French, and Spanish, including sound, music and narration. This collection can be accessed in the library or your home computer.
