All students at Brett School now have a Kuno tablet as part of the school’s Digital Learning Initiative. If you would like to borrow ebooks and audiobooks from Cook Memorial Library that will work on a Kuno, you will need to be connected to wireless internet to access these resources. Cook Memorial has wireless, and we can help you connect your Kuno and access NH Downloadable Books: You will need to apply for a library patron card number to use this service, if you don’t have one already. From your Kuno’s “My E-Books” option, select the Overdrive Media Console app. The first time you use the Kuno with Overdrive Media Console, you will be asked to authorize with an Adobe ID. Follow the instructions to sign up for and enter your Adobe ID (the video link below gives details on how to do this). You only need to authorize the app with an Adobe ID once. Due to Kuno’s internet filtering, you may have to sign up for an Adobe ID on another computer. We can help you with this as well.
For instructions on how to download audiobooks and ebooks: watch this video on using OverDrive Media Console on an Android device.
Note for parents: The best way to find audiobooks and ebooks for kids in NH Downloadable Books is to choose an option listed under “Kids eBooks & Audiobooks” but be that some of the titles that appear here are more appropriate for mature readers, particularly the graphic novels.
About NH Downloadable Books: Cook Memorial Library is a member of NH Downloadable Books, a consortium of libraries that purchase e-books and downloadable books together, organized and administered by the NH State Library. Library card holders of member libraries have access to thousands of titles with this service. To use NH Downloadable Books, you will need a valid Cook Library card, the new type with a barcode and a 14-digit library card number.
Any questions? Come in with your Kuno charged up, and we’ll help.
