Use the OverDrive app to checkout free eBooks and eAudiobooks.
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.
If a title is not available, tap Place a Hold below the book cover. Enter your library card number and password if prompted. After receiving notification that a hold is available, choose one of the following from within the OverDrive app:
1) Borrow the title with three days.
2) Select Deliver Later to stay at the front of the holds list while passing the book to the next person in line. After your chosen suspension period, you will be able to borrow the next available copy.
3) Cancel your hold.
If no action is taken within three days, your hold will be automatically suspended one time for seven days. If no action is taken a second time, the hold will be automatically canceled.
In the App Bookshelf, tap and hold the cover to Return to Library. 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. If others are waiting for the title, select Request again to join 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.
