Ebooks & OverDrive FAQ

1. When will the library get ebooks for me to download?

The library system is partnering with OverDrive to make downloadable ebooks available to the public with a target date of Wednesday, February 15th. Before that, ebooks will not be available. After February 15th, you will be able to access the library system's OverDrive catalog of ebooks.

2. OverDrive? What is OverDrive?

OverDrive is the leading digital distributor of ebooks, audiobooks, and other digital content to libraries. OverDrive works with book publishers to manage content securely and provides the software necessary to download and access that content.

All of the downloadable ebooks are accessed through OverDrive software--whether by web browser or through an application on your device.

3. What devices does OverDrive support?

OverDrive supports all major e-reader devices, such as the Nook, Kindle, iPad, and Sony eReader. For a complete list of supported devices that can access downloadable ebooks from OverDrive, visit the OverDrive Device Resource Center.

4. Do I set this up at the library?

No, in almost all cases you will manage this software from home. Several of the devices require download of OverDrive's software, which must be synced to your specific device and cannot be downloaded to library computers.

5. Where can I find help?

You'll be able to access a multitude of resources from a Downloadables Help Center on the library website. The Help Center will go live at the beginning of February. Library staff will also be able to direct you to resources for troubleshooting OverDrive and ebooks.
