OverDrive is a company that powers library eBook and digital audio book loans for thousands of public libraries. OverDrive Media Console software is available for iPhone and Android devices, letting you check out media from your local library on your phone or tablet. But up until recently the company’s BlackBerry app only supported MP3 audio books. Now OverDrive has released a new version that adds support for eBooks as well.

OverDrive Media Console 2.1 for BlackBerry supports EPUB books. The app is designed for touchscreen phones running BlackBerry OS 4.7 and up or non-touch phones with BB OS 4.5 and up.

The app will be available in the Blackberry App World soon, but for now you can download it for free from OverDrive or from MobiHand. You’ll need a library card for a public library that uses the OverDrive service to check out books.
