OverDrive is a free and popular digital media platform which now allows library customers to download audio books and e-books – and it’s available right now!
There’s fiction and non-fiction items for adults, young adults and children, with regular additions of new material to inspire you. By downloading and installing the free OverDrive software, customers can use their library card and PIN to:
- Download fiction and non-fiction titles from home at any time using an “online shopping-like” experience;
- Transfer audio and e-book titles to your computer or portable devices such as an MP3 player or e-book reader;
- Avoid late fees — the items self expire. You can also check e-books in early if you have finished with them.
Over 2,000 best-selling and classic titles form our current e-book and audio book collection. Half of these are now e-books in Adobe EPUB and Adobe PDF formats – the main formats supported by most portable devices.
At this point the service can only be offered remotely to library members – it is not available for use in libraries. Help pages on how to use this resource are available on our website. OverDrive is just one of many amazing electronic resources that library customers can access through the Source.
