Brand New Look for OverDrive ebooks

Richland Library's downloadable ebook and audiobook collection available through OverDrive is getting a brand new look. You will discover easier browsing and a streamlined check out process. On the book jacket you can see an icon letting you know what formats are available. A darkened icon will indicate that the ebook, audiobook, or video is immediately available for check out.

There are several new ways to browse books. At the top of the OverDrive downloadable home page is an expandable menu with titles grouped by subject, popularity, fiction, teen titles, and other groups. Down the left side you can filter your results by format. You also can search by title, author, keyword, or used the advanced search.

OverDrive is also introducing OverDrive Read, allowing you to read books online without having to download any software or authenticate your device. Books checked out through OverDrive Read will automatically sync to the place you left off the next time you open them online or on your device.
