What is OverDrive?
OverDrive builds apps and websites for libraries or schools to provide ebooks, audiobooks, and more. OverDrive staff members work with each library and school to customize their digital collection for their specific community.
Library patrons and students can access OverDrive's apps (like Libby and Sora) for free! All you need to get started is a library card or student ID.
