SBPL Adds New Features to its Overdrive eBook and eAudiobook Collection

San Bernardino Public Library Overdrive users can also now borrow content from Camarillo, Beaumont and Moorpark Libraries as part of a consortium of Overdrive libraries sharing content.

Residents of the city of San Bernardino can also register for a digital library card directly within the Overdrive app.

While SBPL will be temporarily closed to the public through Sunday, May 3, patrons who have library cards can utilize various free online resources and information available at our library’s website www.sbpl.org .

Among the various resources:

Overdrive – eBooks and eAudiobooks;

ReferenceUSA – Business and phone directories;

Brainfuse – Live Homework Help offering assistance for elementary, middle school and adult learners in various subjects via chat almost every day of the year;

New York Times – Up to 5 full-text articles a month can be viewed;

Footsteps2Brilliance offering information to promote early literacy;

R & B Digital Magazines & Audiobooks featuring electronic editions of popular magazines;
