Nove-L (Northern virtual e-Library) is a collaborative venture between several public libraries in the upper North Island of New Zealand offering access to quality digital content for their local communities.
OverDrive is a free digital media platform that allows you to download eBooks and audiobooks. Members of Matamata-Piako Libraries can access OverDrive through the Nove-L website.
The Nove-L Libraries are: Far North, Hauraki, Gisborne, Kawerau, Matamata-Piako, Otorohanga, South Waikato, Waitomo and Whangarei.
The first time you use OverDrive, you will need to download some free software to your computer or mobile device (please note that Library eBook downloads are not compatible with Kindle at this time.) You will only need to do this the first time you use OverDrive or if you want to use a new device to access your eBooks and audiobooks. Note that you may also need to activate this software - if you are having problems, go to the 'Quick Start Guide' under the help menu.
To access the OverDrive website click on the button below and log-in using your Library card number and PIN. If you do not yet have a PIN please contact us so we can set one up for you.
