Ohio eBook Project
The Ohio eBook Project is a statewide consortium of libraries that jointly provide free downloadable eBooks, audio books, music, and video to library customers.
Browse, “checkout,” and download to your computer and other supported devices for either 7 or 14 days. No overdue fines are charged and some audio books and eBooks are “always available” for download. Just use your Clermont County Public Library card and PIN to set up an account today!
The Ohio eBook Project offers users the option of searching the additional SEO Consortium digital collection for materials. This collection includes 600 Disney Digital online books, which are always available, but must be read on a computer.
You can also access eBooks through our online catalog.
A list of supported audio and eBook devices is featured on the Ohio eBook Project website. The Ohio eBook Project website also provides links to the support pages of the devices' manufacturers' websites.
Download and install the OverDrive Media Console, available for MAC or Windows, for audio books. OverDrive Media Console for Windows utilizes Windows Media® Player 9 Series (or newer) to play DRM-protected files. A Windows security upgrade, which takes just a few moments, must be performed before a file can be opened.
Download and install Adobe Digital Editions software available for MAC or Windows for eBooks. Activate the software for one or multiple devices.
