Download eBooks, Audiobooks, & Music
Camellia Net - click here to download eBooks or digital audiobooks
Rainbow City Public Library has joined with other libraries around the state to access eBooks, digital audiobooks, and music powered by Overdrive. 
This shared collection is called
Camellia Net.

This easy-to-use service is available for use 24/7 with a valid Rainbow City Public Library card in good standing.   Just log in with your 8-digit library card number.  You can enjoy materials on a variety of devices including e-readers, MP3 players, tablets, and smart phones.  The service works with Kindle, Nook, Sony Reader, iPad, iPod, Android, iPhone, Windows Phone and more.  For a complete list of supported devices and supported file formats click here.
 

Overdrive READ titles can be read in most browsers without installing software.  Add the title  to your favorites to easily locate it later or read it offline.  It will pick up where you last stopped reading.

Otherwise, users (except those with Kindle devices) will need to install free software to use the service - OverDrive Media Console for audiobooks and music and Adobe Digital Editions for eBooks.  Links to install the required software can be found here.  The app may also be installed free from most app stores.  Kindle Fire users may also download EPUB and MP3 files to their device with the OverDrive app.

You may check out up to 5 titles.  The lending period can vary from title to title.  Many titles can be returned before they expire; however, WMA titles can not be returned early. There are no late fees on titles.

The option to renew a title becomes available three days before the title is set to expire, appearing next to the title on your Bookshelf under your library Account. You can only use the renew feature once for each checkout.   Click here for more information on renewing titles or click here for complete Camellia Net Library Lending Policies.
