Getting started with OverDrive

With OverDrive, you can borrow and enjoy free eBooks, audiobooks, and more from your library or school's digital collection. All you need to get started is an internet connection, a library card or student ID, 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 devices)
  • The original OverDrive app (for all other library or school users on Android, Chromebook, iOS, Kindle Fire, or Windows 8/10 devices)
  • 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.
