A library card is issued by your library and allows you to borrow titles from their physical or digital collection. You can use your library card to sign into your library, the OverDrive app, and overdrive.com.

An OverDrive account also lets you sign into your library, the OverDrive app, and overdrive.com, but comes with additional features. You can use your OverDrive account to sign into more than one library (as long as each library has switched to the new OverDrive), so you won't have to remember your library card information for multiple libraries. Other features include the ability to manage your sign-in information (like changing your email address or password), use Facebook to set up your OverDrive account, and authorize Adobe Digital Editions to download eBooks on a computer.

Even if you create an OverDrive account, you'll still need a library card to borrow digital titles from your library. When you first sign into your library using an OverDrive account, there will be a one-time prompt to add your library card to your OverDrive account.

A library card is issued by your library and allows you to borrow titles from their physical or digital collection. For most libraries, you can also use your library card to sign into the latest version of the OverDrive app and overdrive.com.

Note: Library card sign-in for the OverDrive app and overdrive.com is not yet available for some libraries. If this feature isn't supported for your library yet, you'll receive an error message when trying to sign into the app or overdrive.com with a library card. More libraries will receive this feature over time.

You can also use an OverDrive account to sign into the latest version of the OverDrive app and overdrive.com. Using an OverDrive account instead of a library card has a few added benefits, like the ability to authorize Adobe Digital Editions to download eBooks on a computer.

Keep in mind that even if you use an OverDrive account to sign into the OverDrive app or overdrive.com, you'll still need a library card to borrow digital titles from your library.
