How to use the audiobook player in OverDrive for Fire tablets and Android devices

The OverDrive app has limited availability. If you can't use the OverDrive app, we encourage you to try our newer reading app, Libby. Get started with Libby on Android, iOS, Fire tablets, or in your browser.

Once you've borrowed and downloaded an audiobook in the OverDrive app, go to your app Bookshelf, then tap the audiobook to start listening.
