Talcott LibraryFYI, Website Tips0 Comments

With OverDrive, you can borrow and enjoy free eBooks, audiobooks, and more from your library digital collection. All you need to get started is an internet connection, a library card, and a PIN number and these three steps:

1. Find your library

Find and open your library or school’s digital collection using one of the following:

  • Our new Libby app (recommended for public library users on Android, iOS, or Windows 10)
  • The original OverDrive app (for all other library or school users on Android, Chromebooks, iOS, Fire tablets, or Windows 8/10)
  • OverDrive.com (for any user on a Windows or Mac computer)

2. Borrow

Borrow a title from your library or school’s digital collection. You’ll need a valid library card or student ID to complete this step.

3. Enjoy

You can enjoy many titles immediately online, download them for offline use, or send borrowed eBooks to a Kindle device (U.S. libraries only) for the duration of your lending period.

You can also transfer titles from your computer to compatible eReaders or MP3 players.
