OverDrive

 

OverDrive has thousands of eAudiobooks available for our patrons to choose from. Borrow up to 15 items at once, and since eAudiobooks automatically expire at the end of the lending period there are no returns necessary and you’ll never need to worry about overdue fines.

How does it work?

If you’re on a iOS, Android or Windows 10 device, download the original OverDrive app or the new Libby app (great for beginners).

If you’re on a Kindle Fire, we suggest downloading the original OverDrive app.

Once the app is installed, open it, select Downey City Library, and login into your account by entering your library card number (hint: it’s the number on the back of your library card) and PIN. After you’ve logged into your account, you are ready to browse, borrow and read eAudiobooks from our collection.

If the eAudiobook you want is checked out, simply place a hold on the book and you’ll be notified when it’s available to borrow.

Detailed instructions and help can be found on the OverDrive help page.
