World first Harry Potter lending with Softlink & OverDrive
Softlink becomes Australia's exclusive distributor for Harry Potter eBooks and audiobooks via OverDrive.
For the first time ever, Softlink is pleased to offer school libraries the opportunity to obtain and lend Harry Potter eBooks and audiobooks via the OverDrive platform. This follows OverDrive's announcement today of an exclusive distribution agreement with the author, J.K. Rowling.
Previously only available through the Pottermore website, the Harry Potter eBooks and audiobooks will be available for digital book lending in a variety of formats, including PC, Mac, eReaders, tablets and smartphones.
As the official distributor of OverDrive eBooks and audiobooks to Australian Schools, Softlink is pleased to support OverDrive in their new partnership agreement.
"J.K. Rowling has had a spectacular effect on the reading community. Her works have been singularly successful in encouraging people of all ages to read and enjoy the Harry Potter series. We are equally pleased to support OverDrive in offering the best titles to libraries worldwide," said Mr Kim Duffy, Softlink's CEO.
Softlink partnered with OverDrive in 2011 to make the digital lending platform available to school libraries in Australia.
