OverDrive

OverDrive provides library patrons remote access to a large collection of premium audiobooks, e-books, and music from their website.  It supports downloads to personal computers, Ipod(R), iPhone(R), iPad(TM), Android(TM), Sony(R)Reader, Kindle, and numerous other mobile devices.

 

OverDrive has a new app that makes borrowing ebooks simple and easy. It's called Libby. The free Libby app is the easiest way to get started with digital books, audiobooks, and magazines from your public library. Libby is available for Android, iOS, Windows 10, and some Chromebooks.

Get started with Libby

STEP 1

Install the Libby app from your device's app store.

STEP 2

In Libby, follow the prompts to find your library and sign in with a valid library card.

STEP 3

Browse your library's collection and borrow a title.

STEP 4

Borrowed titles appear on your Shelf and download to the app automatically when you're connected to Wi-Fi, so you can read them when you're offline.

From your Shelf, you can:

  • Tap Open BookOpen Audiobook, or Open Magazine to start reading or listening to a title.
  • Tap Manage Loan to see options like RenewReturn, or Send to Device to send a book to Kindle (U.S. libraries only).
