With OverDrive, you can borrow and enjoy free eBooks, audiobooks, and more from your library's digital collection. All you need to get started is an internet connection and a library card.
Explore the sections below to learn about some of the things you can do with OverDrive.
Or, search over two million digital titles right on overdrive.com, including eBooks, audiobooks, periodicals, music, and videos. Most eBooks and audiobooks provide samples so you can start reading right away. When you find a title you'd like to borrow, you can see if it's owned by a library near you.
Can't find your library on overdrive.com? That might mean your library isn't purchasing digital titles through OverDrive yet. Ask your librarian to visit our company website for more information about building a digital collection through OverDrive.
For some eBooks and videos, you won't need to install any extra software to start reading or watching what you've borrowed. With OverDrive Read and OverDrive's streaming video, you can just open and enjoy these titles in your browser.
Note: Some digital formats may not be available from all libraries.
