Downloadable eBooks and Audiobooks




The library offers downloadable eBooks and audiobooks through our Overdrive service in conjunction with the Waterloo Public Library. Anyone with a Cedar Falls or Waterloo library card may check out books in the Cedar Falls/Waterloo service.

After installing some free software, patrons can download eBooks and audio books to their home computer and transfer them to any number of compatible devices.  If you have an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or supported android device, you can download the Overdrive Media Console app that allows you to download audiobooks and ebooks directly to your device.  An OverDrive Media Console App is now available for the NOOK HD, NOOK HD+, NOOK Tablet™ and NOOK Color. It can be found in the NOOK Apps storefront and downloaded for free.  Instructions for installing Overdrive Media Console app.  If you have any questions about how to download or use the app call, 319-268-5543.

If you are experiencing problems with the Cedar Falls/Waterloo OverDrive Web site try a different browser. Internet explorer 8 is not compatible with this Web site.
