Our Library is part of the Missouri consortium, and partnered with OverDrive to make thousands of eBooks and Audiobooks available for loan to cardholders of the McDonald County Library.
To find eBooks and Audiobooks available for download, search Missouri Libraries 2 Go.
You will need to download some free software to read/listen to these downloads. It is highly recommended to either take the Guided Tour and/or read the Quick Start Guide FIRST, before you download titles. Help is available online if you need it… Give it a try!
For product-specific information about your brand & model of eBook reader/tablet, try the OverDrive Device Resource Center.
Kindle users can watch this video to see step-by-step instructions on downloading Library eBooks.
Note: The Missouri Libraries 2 Go service is for our library patrons only. You will be prompted to enter your library card information when you begin your download.
There is a limit of five (5) eBooks/Audiobooks borrowed from the Missouri Libraries 2 Go site per patron.
However, ANYONE may download as many as they please of the thousands of additional free eBook titles from Project Gutenberg.
(The Project Gutenberg eBooks are for the use of anyone anywhere at no cost and with almost no restrictions whatsoever. You may copy them, give them away or re-use them under the terms of the Project Gutenberg License included with these eBooks or online at www.gutenberg.org.)
When prompted for your library card number, enter your number EX-cluding all the leading zeroes.
For example: If the number on your library card (located underneath the barcode) is 00091234, then enter 91234 when prompted.
If your library card number is 00123456, then enter 123456 when prompted.
