How to search for titles in your library's OverDrive collection

If you know what you'd like to search for, select Search, then enter your search terms. You can search by title, series, creator (such as author or narrator), and more.

To run an advanced search, select Search, then Advanced. This lets you search by subject, audience, format, date added to site, awards, ISBN, and more.

To browse through titles, use the Subjects menu near the top of the website to view all subjects in your library's digital collection. Or, use the Collections menu to see collections of newly added titles, popular titles, or librarian picks (collections vary by library). On a mobile device, tap menu icon in the top-right corner to see these options.

After you perform a search or open a collection, you can:

  • Choose to see your results as a grid or a list. List view shows more information about each title, including a short description and whether it's part of a series.
