OverDrive Digital Download Service Upgraded
Our OverDrive digital download service just got better! You may now be able to suspend a hold, auto-checkout a hold, and search for books based on content maturity level (i.e. children, teen, adult).
Do you have a busy schedule with no time to relax and read? You can now suspend a hold on an eBook! Set how long you want to suspend your hold and when that time passes, your hold will be reinserted into the waiting list. You may also set your hold to automatically check-out once it becomes available. No more waiting for an email and checking out the eBook manually - get it instantly!
Looking for an eBook specifically for children, a young adult, or maybe an adult? Head on over to your Account Settings and set what types of books you would like to view when browsing the catalog. Set it from "Juvenile to Adult" for all eBooks, or set it for "Juvenile to Juvenile" for young readers or even "Adult to Adult" to view mature reading material only.
New to digital downloads? Want to try it out? Register with your library card number and your pin number; the last four digits of your telephone number in our file; and start downloading free eBooks and audiobooks today!
