Downloadables

eBooks and Audiobooks

Download Destination

To get started you will need:

1. A valid Westland library card. Our contract with OverDrive does not allow us to offer this service to other communities, but many other area libraries also offer access to Download Destination.

2. Make sure you are using a compatible device. Compatible devices include PCs, iPhones, iPads, Android phones, Kindles, and NOOK tablets. Check out the complete list.

3. Download the free required software, OverDrive to your computer or portable device. Some devices require an initial download to a computer. Due to the legalities of downloading digital media, library computers cannot be used to transfer digital downloads. You must have your own computer or access to a computer if you need to use one to get a title onto your device.

4. Search for titles using Download Destination.
