Your Account

You can access your account either through the drop down menu or by clicking the bookshelf image.

Search Enhancements

Overdrive has improved search functions. Now when you'll start typing you'll see suggestions.

Signing In

You can sign in with your library card, with your Overdrive account, or Facebook. Creating an Overdrive account or using Facebook means you won't have to enter your library card each time you sign in.

Choosing a Book

With the new look Overdrive, it's easier to see which books are available, and which books have a waiting list.

Borrowing a Book

You can now choose your borrowing period before you check out the book. You can always return it early, or if nobody is waiting for the book renew it for 3 additional days.
