If you have an iPod touch, please see getting started with iOS devices (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch). For all other iPods, the guide below will help you get started.

Step 1

Install OverDrive's desktop app for Windows or Mac. You'll need this free application to download audiobooks to your computer and transfer them to your iPod.

Step 2

Open your library's OverDrive website on your computer (find it using overdrive.com), and log in with your library card.

Step 3

On your library's OverDrive website, borrow and download an audiobook.

Step 4

Plug your iPod into your computer. Then, open OverDrive's desktop app, select the downloaded audiobook, and click Transfer. Follow the on-screen prompts to transfer it to your iPod.

Once it's transferred, you can listen to it just like any other audio file on your iPod. By default, you can find MP3 audiobooks under "Music" on your iPod.
