If you have an iPod, please refer to our guide on getting started with an iPod.

If you have an iPod touch, please refer to our guide on getting started with iOS devices (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch).

For all other MP3 players, 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 MP3 player.

Step 2

Open your library's OverDrive website on your computer (find it on overdrive.com) and borrow an audiobook.

Step 3

Go to your Checkouts page (under your account) and download the audiobook. It should open automatically in OverDrive's desktop app and prompt you to download its parts.

Step 4

Plug your MP3 player into your computer. Once the audiobook finishes downloading, click it, then click Transfer. Follow the on-screen prompts to transfer the audiobook to your MP3 player.

Once the audiobook is transferred, you can listen to it just like any other audio file on your MP3 player.
