Curious as to see what devices will work with the various services we offer? Click here to see a chart outlining the various options.

We have multiple downloadable services such as Pindigital (Overdrive), 3M Cloud, OneClickDigital, and Zinio Magazines. Apps for all these services are available for your poratable devices and work very similarly from device to device. If you have a Kobo reader, Nook SimpleTouch or Sony Reader, you will need to download and install Adobe Digital Editions on your home computer and use that software to transfer titles to your particular device.

For those using Kindle e-readers (not Kindle Fires), you choose to download the Kindle format for your e-books from the Overdrive website. When you click the download button, you will be taken to Amazon.com where you will need to sign into your Amazon account to add the title to your Kindle library. The next time you sync your device over a WiFi connection, the title should automatically transfer to your device. Please be aware that there are some titles for Kindle that cannot be transferred via WiFi, but only by physically connecting your Kindle to a computer using the Kindle's USB cable. Also, Overdrive is the only e-book service the library subscribes to that has Kindle specific content.

For additional help on using any of these services, please contact our Adult & Teen Services Department at 630-685-4176, by e-mail at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or by text by sending the keyword askfpld to 66746 and then texting your question to that same number when you get the reply from the service.

Pindigital (Overdrive) - ebooks & eaudiobooks

OverDrive

Go to the App Store from your device and search for Overdrive Media Console. Download the app and when it is opened it should ask for you to sign in using an Adobe ID. If you do not have one touch "Get an Adobe ID" and you will be taken to Adobe's website. Fill out the simple form and submit.

If the app does not ask you to sign in with an Adobe ID or after you have created one, follow the steps below depending on your device.

Apple devices and devices using versions of Google Android 4.0 or greater

Go back into the Overdrive app and swipe from the left to the right or touch the three line icon in the upper left corner on your screen to display the app menu. Touch "Settings". At the top of the screen, touch "Authorize" and enter your newly created Adobe ID and password, or scroll the screen down a little and touch "Get an Adobe ID" and come back after you create one, and touch "Authorize".

Android 2.3 users (including Nook Color & Tablet and the original Kindle Fire)

Go back into the Overdrive app and there should be a symbol that looks like three lines surrounded by a three sided box at the bottom center of the screen. Touch that to open the app menu and then touch "App Settings". At the top of the screen, enter your newly created Adobe ID, or touch "Get an Adobe ID" and come back after you create one, and password and touch Authorize.

Once the device is authorized, on Apple or Android 4.0+ devices swipe from the left to the right or touch the three line icon in the upper left corner to open up the menu and touch "Add a Library". Search or browse to find Fountaindale; or on an Android 2.3 device touch the three lines surrounded by a three sided box and touch "Get Books". Touch "Add a library" and search or browse for Fountaindale. Once you find and touch Fountaindale Public Library District, in your "Get Books" list it should say Pindigital. Touch the star next to Pindigital to have the app remember this as your library. Touch anywhere on the Pindigital area to be taken to the Pindigital Overdrive access point. Touch login on the upper right, choose Fountaindale from the "Select a Library" drop down, and then input your library card number. Once you are signed in, you are ready to start checking out e-books and e-audiobooks using Overdrive! Please note: the format you want to choose for ebooks is EPUB, even if you are using a Kindle Fire. The Overdrive app uses EPUB as its format for ebooks.

3M Cloud- ebooks

3M Cloud

Go to the App Store from your device and search for 3M Cloud. Download the app. (Note: the app is available for the Kindle Fire - original - or either of the the Kindle Fire HDs or HDXs but you will need to install it using a workaround. Instructions can be found here.) When you open it, you will need to browse for Fountaindale. After selecting Fountaindale, the app should ask for your library card number (username) and password (PIN). Once you have inputted those items, you should be able to check out e-books and read them from within the app.

OneClickDigital - eaudiobooks

OneClick Digital

You will need to establish an account with OneClickDigital by clicking here and then clicking "create new account" in the upper right corner of the website. Once you have established an account, you can download the OneClickDigital app from the App Store for your device. Choose your region (North America) and use your username and password to login to your account. You can now check out audiobooks! Once you have checked out an audiobook(s), click close in the upper corner. This will take you back to your "My Titles" list. If your title does not appear, you will need to refresh the list by either pulling down from the top of the screen (Apple devices) or touching the refresh button in the upper left corner (Android devices).

Zinio - emagazines

Zinio

Zinio access is offered through a 3rd party called Recorded Books. You'll need to establish an account with Recorded Books first. You'll do this by clicking here. This will take you to the Recorded Books Zinio interface.

In the upper right hand corner, find the link that says "create new account". Click that and then fill in the fields on the window that pops up. If necessary, login in to the service, although you may already be logged in after registering.

You will then be able to select a magazine. Find one that interests you and touch it. You will be then taken to Zinio, the service that actually provides the magazines. You will need to establish an account with them as well. We strongly suggest that you use the same e-mail address and password that you did when you established your Recorded Books account. Once you establish on account with Zinio, you will be able to download the magazine. Please note: we have experienced some difficulties in viewing checked out magazines on a user's account when using the Safari browser from Apple. Please use Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome when accessing Zinio on your device.

There is an app available in the App Store of your device for Zinio (Note: the app is available for the Kindle Fire - original - or either of the the Kindle Fire HDs or HDXs but you will need to install it using a workaround. Instructions can be found here.). You can download it and then use the account you established with Zinio to login to the Zinio app.

The Zinio app is simply for reading the magazines. In the future, you will need to check out the magazine from the Recorded Books interface, which will then place the magazine into your account on Zinio. Once the magazine is in your Zinio account, it will automatically appear in the Zinio app when you login to the app.

Unlike e-books, magazine check outs do not expire. Once you download the magazine, it is yours to keep.
