Overdrive eBooks & Audiobooks

Overdrive eBooks & Audiobooks

Ebooks, audiobooks and magazines for your devices


OverDrive is a digital service provided by the Library that allows you to borrow and download ebooks, audiobooks and magazines. You can access OverDrive by visiting the OverDrive website on your PC, or by downloading the LIBBY app to your AndroidiOS, or Microsoft device. The LIBBY app can also be used on Windows 10. 

OverDrive allows you to borrow up to 6 items at a time (not including magazines) and have up to 10 holds. It is a digital collection that works just like a physical library. Most eBooks and Audiobooks can only be checked out by one patron at a time per copy. This means that popular books in the collection may be checked out to other patrons. Place a hold to reserve the book and OverDrive will notify you when it is ready.  Magazines are always available.

Books and audiobooks can be checked out for 1, 2 or 3 weeks, which is a choice you can make in your account.  Items are returned automatically on their due date, though you may renew an item beginning 3 days prior to it’s due date if there are no holds on the item. You can also return an item early.

You can visit the Libby help page or OverDrive Help page for more information.
