If you have an iPod touch, please refer to our guide on getting started with our new Libby app. 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).

Step 3

Borrow and download an audiobook. It should open automatically in OverDrive's desktop app and prompt you to download its parts.

Step 4

Plug your iPod into your computer. Once the audiobook finishes downloading, click it, then 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 transferred audiobooks under "Music" on your iPod.

If you'd like to categorize it under "Audiobooks" instead, follow these steps.
