What is Freading?

Freading is a new eBook service that we're piloting. An advantage to Freading is that there are no holds and no waiting, Freading books are always available. Experienced Overdrive eBook users will find some steps to be familiar, but other things about the borrowing process will be different. Please note that Freading books are compatible with Kindle Fire, but not other Kindle devices.
