How to use the audiobook player in OverDrive for Chromebook

The OverDrive app for Chromebook can only be used in select countries. If you can't use the OverDrive app, we encourage you to try our newer reading app, Libby. Get started with Libby.

Once you've borrowed and downloaded an audiobook in the OverDrive app, select the Home menu in the top-left corner of the app, go to your Bookshelf, then click or tap the audiobook to start listening.
