What is OverDrive?Go to the Overdrive Catalog
OverDrive is our largest e-book and digital audiobook lending service, providing access to tens of thousands of titles. Once you check a title out, read it directly in your browser, with the free OverDrive app, or with OverDrive’s newest app, Libby (see “Meet Libby” below).
Browse different categories, search for a title, or use the powerful advanced search option. Items can be borrowed for up to 3 weeks and will automatically be returned when they expire.
Free audiobooks will be available every week starting April 26, 2018 through the SYNC Audibooks for Teens program, sponsored by Audiofile Magazine and powered by OverDrive. The SYNC program was developed especially for young adult readers, but anyone may take advantage of the free audiobooks.
Two selections that share a theme will be given away every week beginning April 26, and the available titles will change every week on Thursday at 7 a.m. You must have the OverDrive app in order to download and listen to them (these audiobooks will not work with the Libby app). Learn more on their website.
Libby is an innovative new mobile app from OverDrive. Libby is designed to make borrowing and enjoying eBooks and audiobooks easier than ever, with:
- Intuitive navigation
- A streamlined first-time user experience
- A simplified borrowing and downloading process
- One unified bookshelf that automatically displays all of your loans and holds from all of your libraries
- And more!
You can use Libby in place of, or in addition to, the OverDrive app. Of course, you can also continue to use the OverDrive app exclusively if you’d rather not try Libby at this time. Libby is currently compatible with Android 4.4 or higher and iOS 9 or higher.
Note: Any eBooks and audiobooks that you borrow through the OverDrive app (or your library’s OverDrive website) will show up in Libby.
