EPUB eBooks and MP3 eAudiobooks are available for Androids, iPads, iPhones, iPod Touches, Kindle Fires, and Nook Tablets
The library offers free eBooks and eAudiobooks through a service called OverDrive. There are no late fees. Titles are returned automatically when the checkout period expires or may be returned early. Ten items may be borrowed at a time.
You will receive an email from Fairfax County Public Library from the address email@example.com.
In the App Bookshelf, tap and hold the cover to Return the item. If a title has not yet been downloaded, it may be returned from the Loans page of the OverDrive catalog.
The option to Renew a title becomes available three days before the title is set to expire and appears under the title in your Loans. You can only use the renew feature once per title. If other users are waiting you can Request the title which places you into the waiting list.
You may also choose to listen to or read the title in your browser. OverDrive Listen is a streaming audiobook player, so you'll need an active internet connection to use it. If you'd like to listen to audiobooks without an internet connection, you can still use the OverDrive app to download and listen to the MP3 format.
Note: Using OverDrive Listen can consume a lot of data, so if you're on a mobile plan with a data cap, we recommend using a Wi-Fi connection when streaming on your mobile device to avoid data overages.
