The South Beloit Library has joined the OMNI eBook consortium.  South Beloit Library card holders have access to thousands of eBooks, free of charge, through the library website by clicking on the Overdrive icon below.   You must have a valid library card in order to access this collection.  The eBooks are downloadable to your computer or laptop, and are supported by some popular reader devices such as the iPad, Kindle, Sony Reader, Nook, and Apple and Android devices.  Some audiobooks are also available through OMNI. Log in with your library card barcode number. Your PIN would be the last 4 numbers of the barcode.

Effective April 10, 2014, the OverDrive Media Console (OMC) mobile app for BlackBerry will no longer be available to download on BlackBerry, BlackBerry 10, and Playbook devices.

BlackBerry users with the app installed prior to April 10 will be able to continue downloading eBooks and audiobooks via OMC. However, no further development or testing will be dedicated to it.
