NIDL stands for the Northeast Indiana Digital Library. The Wells County Public Library is part of the NIDL consortium with other public libraries in northeast Indiana. This service provides access to eBooks and eAudiobooks available for downloading onto your PC or transferring to a compatible device, through a company called OverDrive®. This service is available through your home computer using your library card number and PIN. To access the site go directly to http://nidl.lib.overdrive.com or go to the library’s website and click the eBooks or eAudiobooks icon located under the online catalog search box. You can also access OverDrive by downloading the OverDrive Media Console App® on many compatible tablet computers or eReaders.
We strongly recommend that you go to the My Help section on the NIDL website for customized assistance. Simply click on the “Digital Help” link on the right side of the Northeast Indiana Digital Library website in the “Getting Started” section and then click on “My Help.” The My Help section walks you through step-by-step how to set up your device and get it ready to check out eBooks and eAudiobooks. Each device works different and this section is customized to help you with your specific eReader or tablet computer. You’ll also find how-to videos and general help in the main “Digital Help” section.
You can also pick up a “Download Audiobooks and eBooks” brochure at the Main Library or Ossian Branch to give you a general overview of how the process works.
