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)
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.
How do I create an Account?
We recommend creating an account on your first visit to your library’s RBdigital website. Select the “Register” link in the upper-right-hand corner of the screen. Fill in the information requested by your library. Passwords must be at least four characters long and can contain both numbers and letters. Passwords are case sensitive. Usernames are not. If you need further information for creating an account, check with your local library staff.
How Do I Use Freading Ebooks?
1) You need to have a valid library card from a library that has contracted the Freading eBook Service. Although www.freading.com is visible on the World Wide Web, you will be prompted for a valid library card before you can actually download a book. Only library cards from subscribing libraries will work. Valid users can enter the site either from the web or via their subscribing library web site.
