You can access both our Follett eBooks and our OverDrive eBooks. 🙂
If you have an iPad or an Android tablet, find and download the Follett BryteWave App. The first time you open it, you will be asked to enter the address, which is wbb20529. Also you’ll need to enter your standard Hillview username and password. If you are having a hard time finding a book, open your Destiny App (or go to a computer) and find the Resource List called eBooks. The Kindle Fire does not currently support Follett eBooks, but you can read them in your browser. Go to our Destiny catalog and either search by eBook or find the Resource List called eBooks.
For nearly all tablets, find and download the OverDrive Media Console app. (Either through your app store or from omc.overdrive.com) Go to the Add a Library feature and find us: our site is http://hillview.lib.overdrive.com. You’ll need your Hillview ID # to access books (no name or password, just the six digit number on your ID card). Check out our tutorial for step-by-step help with OverDrive.
If you want to practice downloading an OverDrive book, please choose Ace’s Basement, Black Gold, Cheat, Crash, Gifts, Oracle or The Shade. (Some of our books have limited downloads but those are unlimited.)
Some books will require an Amazon account (if the book was only available in Kindle format). Download the free Kindle app and create an Amazon account if you do not have one. You do NOT need to use your real name or attach a credit card to Amazon accounts. Click here if you need help with the Kindle app.
