Penguin will no longer offer additional copies of eBooks and download audiobooks for library purchase. Additionally, Penguin eBooks loaned for reading on Kindle devices will need to be downloaded to a computer, then transferred to the device over USB. For library patrons, this means Penguin eBooks will no longer be available for over-the-air delivery to Kindle devices or to Kindle apps.
OverDrive is continuing to talk to Penguin about their future plans for eBook and digital audiobook availability for library lending.
We have some Penguin publications in our Beyond Library Walls collection. If you’re a Kindle user, this change affects you.
If you have questions about downloading BSC Library eBooks to your eReader (whatever kind you have), ask us. We can help!
