What's the difference between an OverDrive account and a library card?

A library card:

  • Is issued by your library
  • Lets you borrow titles from their physical or digital collection
  • Is required to sign into your library's digital collection
  • Can also be used to sign into overdrive.com and the OverDrive app (for most libraries)
  • May have other perks at the library (like granting access to a library computer)

An OverDrive account:

Even if you create an OverDrive account, you'll still need a library card to sign into your library and borrow digital titles.

Note: You don't need an OverDrive account to use Libby.
