How to add borrowed titles to your Bookshelf in the OverDrive app

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.

Borrowed titles don't automatically appear on your Bookshelf in the OverDrive app.

Instead, you'll need to add titles to your Bookshelf from the Loans section of your library:

  1. Open your library in the OverDrive app, then click or tap loans to go to your Loans page.
  2. Select Download or Add to app next to a title.
  3. Find the title on your app Bookshelf:
    • On Fire tablets, Android, Chromebook, and iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch): Tap the menu icon in the top-left corner of the app to open the Home menu, then tap Bookshelf.
    • On Windows 8/10: Click or tap the Back arrow in the top-left corner of the app until you return to the Bookshelf (home screen).

Note: Some titles can't be downloaded to the OverDrive app. Instead, you can open these titles in your device's web browser. These titles won't be added to your Bookshelf.
