I was just reading about that a few days ago, nonie, and I believe 'tis the Kindle that has the library capability. If that is correct, you should be able to download the Kindle app onto your Thrive and then read a lib book in the app.

I could be mistaken; it might've been the Nook and if so, I know you can put it on your Thrive.

Let us know if you do this how it works! :)

Keith is right, Overdrive works great on the Thrive-- also, many local libraries are supporting the Kindle app as well. You need to log onto their site(s), check the ebook section, and they'll let you know what eBbook versions each edition is in.

Thanks for saying how lib ebooks work. I definitely want to pursue lib ebooks. I've purchased several books for my nook---and after I read them they are just there on my nook and I can't sell them or give them to anyone. :( :(

That's what I want to do, is get books from my local library, but its seems my local library does not support overdrive. What I would have to do is download to my pc via adobe digital editions, then hook thrive to pc and transfer. Doing it that way seems a lot of trouble. Lol.

Like Hummingbirdhill said, after you read them, they are just there,if you buy them.

If I understand overdrive, it downloads directly to thrive.

Now wonder if there is an on line library I can, that will issue me a card, :)

When I browse my local library web site for ebooks, a dropdowqn box appears that lets me know what other libraries in the area (inter-library loan program) I can download it from....so if it's electronically "checked out" at my local site, I can choose another. Tell your library to get with it!
