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.

Content Restrictions

Libby/Overdrive now has content restrictions in place that prevent Children and Tween library cards from accessing adult titles due to legislation.

Parents who would like their child to access all content, can link their own library card with the Child/Tween card to override restrictions. Parents should be aware that doing this will also allow their child to see whatever they are reading or have checked out. Information about linking cards

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.
