We recommend using the OverDrive app to download and read borrowed eBooks on your Windows 8 or 10 device.

Once you've borrowed and downloaded an eBook in the app, click or tap the Back arrow in the top-left corner of the app until you return to the app home screen, then click or tap the audiobook to begin listening.

Note: If you'd rather read eBooks in your device's web browser (without the OverDrive app), you can use OverDrive Read instead.
