Overdrive Media offers both text eBooks (ePub, Kindle, or PDF formats) and eAudiobooks (WMA or MP3 formats), magazines and videos for checkout. You can download these to your home computer or laptop. Loans have a specified duration and your access to a borrowed title will end when the loan period expires. In order to borrow or download, you must have your library card barcode and PIN (personal identification number.) If you don’t know your PIN, circulation desk staff can help you set one for your account.
