You can transfer audiobooks to MP3 players using OverDrive for Windows (desktop).

Note: If you're using Windows 8 or newer, you can transfer audiobooks using OverDrive for Windows 8 instead of the traditional desktop version.

If you're using an Apple device (iPhone, iPad, or iPod), use these instructions instead of the ones below, because transferring to Apple devices works a little differently.
