NEW WEBSITE & APP DESIGN! OverDrive has had a redesign - look out for our updated site from the 6th September! Read the up-dated user instructions if you need help navigating the new site.

If you are having difficulties accessing the app since the up-grade please contact

OverDrive is a collection of 1000s of ebooks and audiobooks that can be downloaded to a variety of devices. You can borrow ten titles at a time for up to 21 days and books can be reserved if out on loan. There is no need to “return” the book - once the lending period has expired the book will no longer be accessible.   As well as the main Overdrive site, you can access the Kids & Teen Overdrive site too.


OverDrive has a range of easy to use apps. There are instructions for using the OverDrive app for AppleAndroidWindows 8 &10; and Kindle Fire.
