OverDrive Instructions


You can download titles one of two ways: as an Adobe EPUB eBook, or as a Kindle eBook. EPUB eBooks will download to your device and become available in the OverDrive app bookshelf. The Kindle eBook will require you to log into your Amazon account and choose which device to send the title to. The title will then be downloaded onto the device and accessible through the Amazon Kindle app.

The basic steps include:

  • Log in to the Electronic Resources section of the Library website with your library card and telephone number.
  • Click on the OverDrive logo.
    • You are automatically logged in through your library account.
  • Select a book to borrow.
  • Select read.
  • You will stream the title from OverDrive

For Downloading titles onto your devices
