OverDrive.com is designed to help you get digital eBooks, audiobooks, videos, and music quickly and easily. You can search for a title, then immediately see if it's available to borrow, for free, from your library.
You can register for an OverDrive account (also free) to further enhance your experience.
Why register for an OverDrive account? What is it?
Setting up a free OverDrive account lets you take advantage of these features:
- Sync your progress and bookmarks
Devices with the latest OverDrive app (for Android 4.0+, iOS 6.0+, or Windows 8/RT) work with your OverDrive account to sync your progress and bookmarks for eBooks, audiobooks, and streaming videos that you've downloaded or added to the app. So, when you move from your iPad to your Nexus 5, you don't have to spend time scrolling through pages or fast-forwarding to find your place or favorite passages.
- Sync and filter search results to your saved OverDrive libraries
When you save libraries to your OverDrive account, you can access them from any device you've signed in with. When you get a new tablet and install the OverDrive app, just sign in to your account and your saved libraries will appear automatically. When searching at OverDrive.com, you can filter results to show only titles available at your libraries.
- Save searches to your account
Are you a Jim Butcher fan? With an OverDrive account, you can search for "Jim Butcher," save the results, and then return to them each time you're ready to check out the next book in the series.
- Simplify Adobe ID registration
If you read eBooks from OverDrive, you know that the Adobe registration process can be frustrating. With your OverDrive account and an Android, iOS, or Windows 8/RT device, this will become a one-time step. After your initial registration, we'll automatically activate new devices for you when you sign into your OverDrive account on each device. You can have up to six devices synced with your account and activated with the same Adobe ID.
Sign up for an OverDrive account using your Facebook account or email address, then create a quick profile with your favorite genres and libraries.
Note: When you create an account, you'll be asked to verify your email address. To complete the process, click the link we send you in your verification email.
How much does an OverDrive account cost?
Not a thing. OverDrive accounts are completely free.
Does an OverDrive account replace my library card or account?
No. Even if you create an OverDrive account, you'll still need a library account and your library card to borrow and enjoy titles from your library's digital collection.
