Penguin Ends Ebook Agreement with OverDrive

Dear Library Partner,

Starting tomorrow (February 10, 2012), Penguin will no longer offer additional copies of eBooks and download audiobooks for library purchase. Additionally, Penguin eBooks loaned for reading on Kindle devices will need to be downloaded to a computer then transferred to the device over USB. For library patrons, this means Penguin eBooks will no longer be available for over-the-air delivery to Kindle devices or to Kindle apps. 

We are continuing to talk to Penguin about their future plans for eBook and digital audiobook availability for library lending.

If you have any questions, please contact Penguin (Erica Glass, Erica.glass@us.penguingroup.com). OverDrive has no additional information to share at this time.

Regards,
OverDrive's Library Partner Services team
