Overdrive FAQs

Many of our customers have tried our already popular eBook and eAudiobook collections for the first time in the past year.  Here are some questions that new and long-time users often ask us:

What is the difference between Libby and OverDrive?

OverDrive is the service that provides our electronic book collections.  Libby is the App for checking out and reading or listening to books.  It is available for Apple, Android and even in web browsers at libbyapp.com.  OverDrive materials can also be checked out through our website and on some eReaders.

How do I ask the library to purchase an OverDrive book?

  1. Search for the book at overdrive.com
  2. Items marked “Not in Collection” can be recommended by clicking the “Recommend” button and entering your information
  3. If we purchase the book, the system will send you an email
