Ebooks are available to patrons of Chinook Arch member libraries with a valid library card.
If you are using a dedicated e-reader (such as a Kobo), you will need to create a free Adobe ID to borrow OverDrive ebooks. (Use our Creating an Adobe ID and downloading Adobe Digital Editions guide.) If you are using a tablet or mobile device, you do NOT need an Adobe ID.
Includes over 9,000 popular fiction, non-fiction, and technical titles.
TumbleBookLibrary An online collection of animated, talking picture books for kids. Include animation, sound, music and narration.
