How to sync your progress and bookmarks in the OverDrive app across multiple 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.

You can sync your progress and bookmarks for downloaded ebooks and audiobooks in the OverDrive app across multiple devices, as long as:

  • You sign into the OverDrive app with the same OverDrive account or library card on each device.
  • You download the titles to the OverDrive app from your library's collection on each device.
  • You have "Automatic syncing" turned on in your app Settings (or OverDrive account, in OverDrive for Windows 8/10).
  • You have an active internet connection.

Your progress and bookmarks will automatically sync when you open or close a title in the OverDrive app. When you open the app on another device, follow the prompts to go to your last synced place.
