Here at Helen Hall Library we use an online library program called 'Overdrive'. Overdrive allows you to check out digital copies of your favorite books and audiobooks. All you need is a Helen Hall Library card to get started with Overdrive. If you don't have your library card yet, please click here to get started. Overdrive can be used on your desktop computer, or on your mobile devices through the Overdrive apps. There are two apps that are made by Overdrive, they are called "Overdrive" and "Libby". The Overdrive apps are currently compatible with Windows, Android, IOS, and Kindle.
You can have up to 15 items checked out at one time through Overdrive. All items check out for 2 weeks at a time, and can be renewed twice as long as no one has it on hold. Items may only be renewed within the last three days that they are checked out. If you have 15 items checked out and want to check out another, you can place the item on your wish list to save it for later. Your wish list can have up to 5,000 titles on it.
Overdrive is a free service provided by the library. Since all materials are automatically removed from your account when they are due, there are no late fees/fines that you can get though Overdrive.
