Thrift Library recently upgraded its NetLibrary account to allow downloading eBooks
to your home or office computer, laptop, cell phone, eBook reader or other
that while two thirds of the library’s 36,000 NetLibrary titles are
downloadable, some are not. You can tell if an eBook is downloadable by opening
the book and looking under the eContent Details Tab. If the following link is
present- Check Out & Download this eBook – then you can download it.
Also, you can limit your search to
downloadable titles by selecting the format - Downloadable eBooks - in the
advanced search mode.
Compatible portable devices include
the Barnes & Noble Nook, Several Sony Digital Readers, and the COOL-ER. NetLibrary
does not yet support Amazon’s Kindle. All devices that support Adobe
Content Server are compatible, although some work
better than others with NetLibrary eBooks.
eBooks may be “checked out” to your
device for 3-7 days.
NOTE: You must first download Adobe
Digital Editions to your computer or mobile device
in order to download and read NetLibrary eBooks off line. This free software is
not the same as the more commonly used Adobe Reader. Users will have to
register and set up a personal account with Adobe. Here’s how.

By Mark Batterson

An inspirational book that encourages readers to make the
most of opportunities and realize God’s power whatever the circumstances. Using examples from the Bible, Batterson illuminates
