OverDrive Basics This Quick Start Guide explains what free software needs to be installed to download titles, how to activate the software, and basic information on checking out and downloading titles.
OverDrive Catalog Circulation Policies
Two items may be checked out at a time and four holds may be placed. Once the title you have placed on hold becomes available for checkout, you will receive an email indicating the title is available. You will then have three days to check out the title before it is returned to the collection.
Titles may be checked out for 7 - 14 days and cannot be returned early. They will automatically be returned at the end of the lending period. OverDrive items can not be renewed, but they can be checked out again if no other patron has a hold on the item.
Limit on Downloads
Audiobooks are split into parts, which can be downloaded individually. There is a limit of three downloads allowed for each item, per checkout, regardless of whether it is a partial or full download. If you download part one on Monday, and part two on Tuesday, the next time you download any parts, you will need to download the rest of the audiobook, or at least, as much of it as you want to listen to this checkout.
eBooks are available at Freading, a growing collection of fiction and nonfiction eBooks. Titles are always available – no waiting in line even if someone else is reading the book. Refer to their Frequently Asked Questions page for help with this service.
RBDigital (previously OneClickdigital) provides access to more than 6000 audiobook titles published by Recorded Books. Most titles are always available and require no holds or waiting lists. A small number of newer titles are available as "one user per copy." Get started with these instructions.
