In order to access OverDrive titles, you need:
- Computer or mobile device (Supported Portable Devices)
- Internet Connection
- Library Card
- Free Software or Apps
Formats: EPUB, OEPUB, PDF, WMA, MP3
Loans: 3 weeks, 5 titles at a time. At the end of your loan period, the ebook files will no longer be accessible. Your computer or device will prompt you to delete expired library e-books. E-books are never overdue, and there are never any fines.
* The library lends e-books with Adobe Digital Rights Management (DRM). Digital Rights Management is sometimes referred to as "digital locks" because it is a way of restricting access to, or copying of, electronic files. DRM is what makes library e-books expire at the end of their loan period. The type of DRM that is used on library items is called Adobe Digital Rights Management and it is managed using a free Adobe ID.
In order to use library e-book services, you will need to set up an Adobe ID. You can get one for free from Adobe.com. Once you have your Adobe ID, you will need to use it to authorize any computer or mobile device you are using to read or listen to library e-books. You can authorize a maximum of six computers or devices with one Adobe ID. If you need to reset your activations, contact Adobe Customer Service.

Note for eBooks
In some cases, portable devices like smart phones may be able to access our e-book collection independently using an app. Apple and Android phones and tablets can do this, as can some Windows 7 Mobile and Blackberry devices. However, OverDrive Media Console may still be required on a PC in order to access e-audiobooks in WMA format.
Note for Macintosh users
OverDrive Media Console is available for both Windows and Macintosh computers. However, of the two audio formats available from our e-book site, only MP3 is compatible with Mac computers. If you are using a Mac to download audio books, then only MP3 titles will play on your machine. We buy MP3 audiobooks whenever they are available, but some publishers only release their titles in WMA format.
