How do I access Tararua District Library ebooks and eaudio?

January 22, 2016

If you are a library member, then you can freely download e-books or e-audio to your compatible device (except Kindle or Amazon Fire).  Brochures are available at our branches, and if you have problems, you can bring your device in and we will do our best to help you get started.

E-books and e-Audio area available via Wheelers or ePukapuka

For smartphones or tablets:

Download the ePlatform app (Wheelers)or the Libby app (overdrive ePukapuka) from either the android or apple store.

Open the app – use the search to find Tararua District Library.  Log in to use the app with your username (library card number on the back of your card) and your usual password.  Once logged in, you can download up to six e-books at a time (Wheelers) or as many as you want (Overdrive).  There are no costs involved.

Titles do expire – depending on the publisher, the ebook can be accessed anywhere from 26 times, to anytime within a two year period. So if you see something you want to read, we recommend you read it while the title is still available on the site.

Can you renew?  yes

Can you place a hold? yes, and it’s free.

What if you don’t know your passcode?

As long as we have your email address on file, you can find out by going to our catalogue and clicking log in on the top right. Enter your library membership number then click on Forgotten passcode. Enter your membership again, and the system will email you a link to reset the passcode.  After reseting, allow an hour for the ebook site to harvest the new passcode.



For dedicated e-reader or PC:

Make sure you have Adobe Digital Editions downloaded.  If you have an ereader or laptop, you can still access our ebooks.

  1. Go to
  2. Scroll down the home page and click on the Wheelers icon or the ePukapuka logo
  3. Sign In using your library card number and password.  (See above if you don’t know these)
  4. Digital Rights Management must already be installed on your device to download. Library eBook titles are encrypted with DRM. If you have not already set up an Adobe account on your device, do this via:
  5. 4. If your ereader has wifi capability, you can download over that. Otherwise, connect your ereader to your PC to download.
