The process for searching, borrowing and downloading ebooks is the same for Nooks with black and white (B/W) screens and for reading on a computer. B/W Nook users will take the additional step of plugging their device into the computer and transferring titles to it.
NOTE: Kindle users should follow the instructions in the Kindle handout.
NOTE: Tablet users should follow the instructions in the OverDrive or Libby App handout.
1) Borrow the title within 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 canceled automatically.
From the Library View within Adobe Digital Editions, right click on the cover of the book you wish to return and select Return Borrowed 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 choose to read titles in your computer’s browser using the OverDrive Read format. The Overdrive Read format opens a title in your browser which may be read on or offline until the browser is closed. You may open a title using the Overdrive Read option as many times as you wish.
Newer Nook tablet users can download the Libby app to access EPUB eBooks and MP3 eAudiobooks. Please refer to the Libby app handout for detailed instructions.
