eBooks & eAudio

​South Island Downloadable Zone

Welcome to your virtual library without walls - free for Grey District Library members!

South Island Downloadable Zone is brought to you by a group of public libraries in the South Island of New Zealand working cooperatively to provide free downloadable eBooks and audiobooks to their customers. They use OverDrive, the world's biggest provider of eBooks and audiobooks.

OverDrive is a digital media platform where you can download titles onto your computer. You can also transfer them to popular portable devices such as iPods, iPhones, iPads, other audio players, smartphones and eReaders (currently Kindles are not compatible). It's free, open 24/7 and you never have to pay overdue fines.

Explore our growing collection of digital audio and eBooks and use your library card to download titles to your computer or portable players. Available 24/7, now your library is always open!

There are hundreds of books in the South Island Downloadable Zone for Grey District Library members to see and read. This includes cool and exciting kids books.

The 'Advantage Collection' is available to Grey District Library members only. Please sign in and look for this logo that indicates these books:
