OverDrive

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 overdrive@dlrcoco.ie with any queries. For more information, click on the DLR Library OverDrive homepage

Please note that during library closures, we extended OverDrive access to those who joined online. From December 1st, with the intended cessation of Level 5 restrictions, OverDrive will revert to being accessible to patrons with a DLR library card only. For those wishing to continue usage, please visit one of our eight branches with your temporary library card number and proof of address to receive your physical DLR library card.

RB Digital e-audio titles will transfer to Overdrive on Tuesday, November 10, 2020, and we will let you know if there are any expected changes to that timeline. That afternoon (around 1:00pm), RBdigital will disable new issues and renewals for audiobook content in the RBdigital app and website as we move the titles to OverDrive. The content transfer itself may take a few hours and once complete, it could take up to 24 hours for titles to fully populate. 
 
 
There is also an app 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).
