OverDrive offers a large selection of eBook, audiobook, music and video titles. OverDrive is based on the ‘library lending model’ whereby titles are ‘checked out’ and issued to your OverDrive account for 21 days. You can check out up to 12 titles at any given time. If a title is checked out, it is no longer available to other borrowers until the 21 day lending period is up. Once you download a title, you can then access it on your computer but you have the additional option of transferring it to an external device such as an eReader, MP3 player, Smartphone, iPad or tablet. OverDrive also has an app which allows you to download titles directly to your device. OverDrive also has an app which allows you to download titles directly to your device. Please note, the Libby app is a newer app released by OverDrive and can be accessed but content is the same across the two apps.
If you are interested in a title which is currently checked out, you can place a ‘hold’ on it and you will be informed by email when the title becomes available. Please note that Kindle e-reader devices are not compatible with OverDrive in Ireland (Kindle Fire tablets may be used as they allow you to download the OverDrive app). To use OverDrive, you will need your library card number and PIN. Help pages are available on the site and you may also contact with any queries.
