I’ve had my NOOK Color for a few years now, and I love it. Naturally, I use it to check out eBooks and audiobooks from CLEVENET, my local OverDrive-powered library. Previously, the process involved sideloading the files onto the device from my computer using a USB cable. But since October, the availability of the OverDrive Media Console app in the NOOK Apps storefront has made the process so much easier. Now I can check out eBooks and MP3 audiobooks wirelessly—no need for a computer at all.


Once you install OverDrive Media Console for Android on your NOOK, accessing your library’s digital collection is a snap. The Android-based app will work with NOOK HD/HD+, NOOK Color, or NOOK Tablet. All you need is a library card and an WiFi connection.


To download the app, simply go to the NOOK Apps storefront. Visit OverDrive Help for detailed instructions on “How to install OverDrive’s mobile app on your NOOK” as well as “How to borrow audiobooks and eBooks,” “How to authorize OverDrive’s mobile app using Adobe ID” and more.


You can use this poster and web graphic to inform your patrons about the availability of OMC for NOOK. Print the poster, place the web graphic on your site or Facebook page, and spread the word to NOOK users in your community!

    Is there a way to sync my NookHD and my iPad so that I can access the same library book? I use both and have overdrive media console downloaded on both. I use my iPad during the day so like to have my book available but use my NookHD in bed to read at night because it’s so much lighter to hold up. My local library couldn’t help me with this question.

      Hi Vickie, as long as you’re signed into your library account on the digital collection you can access your checked out titles on multiple devices. If you checked out the title on your iPad during the day simply go to your account on your Nook and you’ll find the title available for use later as well.

    When you access your library account on multiple devices can you pick up where you left off ?
