Yonkers Public Library (YPL) buildings have reopened. Learn more about our reopening plan.

Borrowing Ebooks with Your Kindle

The eBook is the first new reading format since Gutenberg’s invention of movable-type printingand almost as revolutionary. Your public library system has been eager to bring this exciting new kind of book to the reading public, according to our original mission of free lending of wide-ranging collections. To this end, we have partnered with forward-thinking companies providing the latest in new access technologies … but not all technologies and companies work in the same way. 

The Kindle: A Family of Devices  

“Kindle” is an Amazon brand name, which refers to two groups of devices: 

First, there are the Kindle e-readers. These devices (the basic Kindle, the Kindle Paperwhite, and the deluxe Kindle Oasis, pictured below left to right) are dedicated e-readers, and are not Web-enabled in general; their Web browsers are limited to the Goodreads book-review site and the Amazon.com Kindle store. Think of them as portable libraries! 

There is also the Kindle Fire tablet. This device is a bargain-priced tablet computer, capable of Web browsing, streaming video and music, downloading apps, taking photos, playing games, recording and playback – i.e., all the options of a portable computer. It looks like this: 

This leads to some confusion as to how one’s own Kindle device interfaces with the Overdrive collection and checkout protocol. 

Using Overdrive with the Kindle Fire 

One may either download the Overdrive app from the Google Play store or the Apple App Store. Create an account using your library card barcode and PIN. (If you are prompted to enter the name of your library, please enter “Westchester Library System.”) Once you have established your account, you may search the Overdrive collection, select any available item, and click “Borrow” to download it directly to the device. Holds can be set for items that are not immediately available. 

Using Overdrive with the Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite, and Kindle Oasis 

Kindle devices cannot access non-Amazon websites, so in order to use Overdrive, a second, fully Web-enabled device, hosting your individual Amazon account, is necessary. One may use a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer for this purpose. On this intermediary device, access Overdrive on the Web browser via ypl.org/ebooks/, click on the Overdrive link, and create your account with your library card barcode and PIN. Search and select items at will, click “Borrow,” and click on the option “Read now with Kindle.”

This is where it gets a little tricky! Your browser should now open another window, this one in your Amazon.com account, and on the right offer a button: “Get Library Book.” Below the button should be the words “Deliver to: [Name of your Kindle device].” Click the “Get Library Book” button, and the book will be delivered to your Kindle device the next time that device is connected to Wi-Fi and synced. It will remain there either for 7 or 14 days, depending upon the preferences you established when you set up your Overdrive account. 

If you encounter any problems while using Overdrive or have further questions, feel free to call the Riverfront Library reference desk at (914) 375-7966.
