Download eBooks & Audiobooks

Download eBooks & Audiobooks

OverDrive is a database that offers eBooks, audiobooks, music and videos that you can download to devices like Kindles, Sony Readers, Nooks, and iPads, iPods and other MP3 players, (to name just a few). To access the database, go to and click the OverDrive link on the left side of the page.

· 1 million in titles will be added throughout 2012. The purchasing has already begun so look for the collection to grow dramatically! The state's 17 library systems, 385 member libraries and funds paid this for collectively from a DPI grant.

· If you are looking for something you can check out immediately, try using the “currently available” links on the left side of the OverDrive homepage or click the “only show available titles” box when searching. OverDrive also provides easy access to newly returned titles via "Just Back In" banners.

· You can search by format (like Kindle Book or MP3) if you click the advanced search link

· The average waiting period for a hold is 19 days. If you are waiting for something, be sure to look at the number of copies owned in addition to the number of holds. More copies means a shorter wait!
