Overdrive eBooks for Kindle devices


Borrowing

  1. Sign in to Library2Go on any device

    Though you can sign-in with a library card number or Facebook account, we recommend creating an OverDrive account. For more information, search for “What is an Overdrive Account” at [help.overdrive.com][odh-acct]. Optionally, check Keep me signed in on this device.

  2. Find books in Kindle format

    Browse with filters or use Advanced Search.

    • Browse example: Subjects (upper left of screen) > Mystery > eBooks (in left-side menu) > Kindle Book.
    • Advanced Search example: Search (upper-right of screen) > Advanced (below the search box) > Formats > Kindle Book.

    Tip: Use the Available Now filter to hide checked-out books. Find the filters in the left-side column when browsing subjects and categories (upper-left of screen) or viewing search results.

  3. Borrow a book from Library2Go

    Click a book cover, then click BORROW. To change the loan period click the options button to the right of BORROW.

    Note: Books will self-return at the end of the loan period. You can renew titles (within three days of expiration) by tapping the account button and Request again. If the title has no holds, you can borrow it again as soon as it expires. There is a limit of 6 items borrowed and 6 items on hold.

  4. Download the book from Library2Go

    Find your borrowed book on the account page (upper-right of screen) in Library2Go. Click DOWNLOAD and Kindle Book. Complete your checkout on the Amazon website with the green box on the right. Your Kindle will automatically download the book over a wireless internet connection as if you had purchased it. Do not click the Download now button unless you need to transfer the book with a cable.

Returning

This is an optional step because books will self-return at the end of the loan period.

  1. Go to Amazon.com and sign in your account.
  2. Click Your Account near the upper-right corner, then Manage Your Content and Devices
  3. Find your library book in the list, and click the Actions button to the left of the title.
  4. Click Return this book. To remove the book from your list, click the Actions button again and Delete.
