eLibraryNJ

eLibraryNJ s a downloadable eBook and eAudiobook collection provided by libraries in central NJ, offering thousands of popular fiction and non-fiction titles.

Overview

  • To use eLibraryNJ (also referred to as OverDrive), you will need your library barcode and PIN.
  • From the eLibraryNJ website, you can search, borrow and read online, but you will need an app to download books.
  • For on-the-go access on your device, download either the Libby app or the Overdrive app. Libby is more user-friendly, but Overdrive works fine and is the only option on some devices.
  • eLibraryNJ includes Kindle-compatible titles that may be sent to a dedicated Kindle e-reader.
