1. Do I have to be in the library to download e-books to my e-reader?
No. Most items can be downloaded wirelessly to your device from Overdrive anywhere there's a wireless connection.
2. Can I do it all from my device?
That depends on what device you own. Currently the e-readers that do not require a computer are: Kindle Fire and Fire HD, iPad, Smart phones, Nook HD and Nook Color and Android tablets. You must have your own computer to download to other e-readers.
