Overdrive Download Audio and E-book graphicThe Milan Public Library is pleased to announce access for our community to a selection of OverDrive downloadable audiobooks and eBooks through our membership in the Woodlands Library Cooperative.

What is OverDrive?

Overdrive is a collection of digital materials, including e-books and audiobooks, available for download to computers, e-readers and other portable devices such as smartphones and tablets! The collection includes many popular titles which can be downloaded and ‘checked out’ like regular library materials.  When an item is due, it is automatically deleted from your device, but you can return titles early if you are finished with them. No overdues!!! Popular items may have a wait list, but you can place a reserve on any item and be notified when it’s available.

Getting Started

1) Make sure you have a compatible device.  You can view a list here.
