We now have two ways to read great library eBooks
on your Apple device. You may work via the
OverDrive Media Console App on an iPhone, iPad or
iPod Touch. You may also use a feature called
OverDrive Read through the library’s website on
your browser, getting eBooks without the need for
an app. If you need help with either method, visit an
FCDL location or call (740) 653-2745 ext. #167.
