The new OverDrive offers multiple options for signing into your library. Read the details below to decide which sign-in option is best for you.

Note: The options below are for signing into your library's digital collection, though you may be also able to use them to sign into the OverDrive app. Learn more about all of the OverDrive app sign-in options here.

Sign in using your library card

The library card option is the first sign-in option you'll see when signing into your library.

If you sign in with your library card:

  • You'll be able to borrow titles, place holds, and add titles to your wish list at that library.
  • You'll have to sign in each time you visit, but you can select Remember my library card on this device (or similar) when signing in so you won't have to enter your library card information every time.
  • If you belong to multiple libraries, you'll need to enter different sign-in information for each digital collection.

You can also use your library card to sign into:

This is a good sign-in option if you're under 13 years old (because it doesn't require any personal information), if you don't want to provide your email address and name, or if you only have one library card.

Sign in using OverDrive or Facebook

If you'd prefer to sign in with an OverDrive account (which requires an email address) or Facebook, select one of these options under "Or choose another option." The first time you sign into your library's digital collection with an OverDrive or Facebook account, you'll be prompted to add a valid library card to your account.

After you sign in using OverDrive or Facebook and add a library card:

  • You'll be able to borrow titles, place holds, and add titles to your wish list at that library.
  • If you select Keep me signed in on this device when signing in, the site will remember you, so you won't have to sign in every time you visit.
  • Your library card will be saved to your OverDrive or Facebook account for all future visits.

You can also use your OverDrive or Facebook account to sign into:

  • Other libraries that have switched to the new OverDrive (as long as you add a valid library card at each one)
  • The OverDrive app
  • overdrive.com
  • Adobe Digital Editions (OverDrive accounts only)

This is a good sign-in option if you already have an OverDrive account, currently use the OverDrive app, belong to multiple libraries, or use Adobe Digital Editions to transfer eBooks.
