OverDrive announced this week that it had expanded its free library eBook program to include hundreds of partner libraries in Australia and Canada.
It’s a little surprising to hear of the expansion this week; it was one year ago yesterday that Overdrive started offering the PG titles to its member libraries here in the USA. Expansion seems to have taken a while.
Participating libraries can now add any of tens of thousands of public domain eBooks to their collections. The eBooks will be downloaded in DRM-free Epub and will cost the libraries nothing. It’s just one more service overdrive offers.
