OverDrive has thousands of eBooks available to choose from. Borrow up to 15 items at a time, and best of all, you never have to worry about returns or overdue fines since eBooks automatically expire at the end of the lending period.
How does it work?
If you’re on iOS, Android or Windows 10 devices, download the original OverDrive app or the newer Libby app (a great alternative for beginners).
If you’re on a Kindle Fire, we suggest downloading the original OverDrive app.
Once the app is installed on your device, open it up, 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 eBooks from our collection.
If the eBook 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.
