Which sign-in option in the OverDrive app is best for me?

When you first install and open the OverDrive app, you'll see several options for signing into the app.

To download ebooks on multiple devices, sign in to the OverDrive app the same way on each device.

The OverDrive account option

The OverDrive account option allows you to sign into the OverDrive app on multiple devices and authorize Adobe Digital Editions on a computer.

To sign into the app with an OverDrive account, select Sign up or Sign in.

The library card option also allows you to sign into the OverDrive app on multiple devices, but you can't use it to authorize Adobe Digital Editions.

The under-13 or school option

The under-13 sign-in option is recommended for users under the age of 13 who can't sign in using their library card.

This option allows you to sign into the OverDrive app on only one device, so you can't download ebooks on multiple devices. Learn more about the under-13 option.
