Download eBooks and audiobooks from your library directly to your Windows Phone! OverDrive Media Console gives you on-the-go access to eBooks and audiobooks from your public, school, or college library. More than 18,000 libraries worldwide offer best-selling and classic titles via OverDrive, so use the 'Get Books' feature in the app to find a library near you.
Digital titles from your library are borrowed just like print material. Once you find your library using 'Get Books,' you can browse your library's digital collection website in the app, check out a title with a valid library card, and download the title directly to your Windows Phone. While borrowing the digital title, you can enjoy it using the app's eBook reader or audiobook player. Each EPUB eBook and MP3 audiobook that you check out has a lending period. The title automatically expires in the app at the end of the lending period, so there's never a late fee. There's even a handy countdown clock built into the app so you know how long you have to read or listen before the title expires.
What happens if a digital title is already checked out? Just like with physical material from the library, you can join a waiting list. All you need to do is enter your email address and you'll receive an alert when the title is available for check out.
Don't want to wait? Many libraries offer thousands of EPUB eBook downloads that are always available. Just check for the 'Additional eBooks' link at the bottom of the digital collection homepage and you can get a free eBook from your library that's yours to keep—without a lending period.
You can also download DRM-free EPUB eBooks from other online sources using 'Get Books'.
Want more books? Contact your library and let them know that you are using OverDrive on your Windows Phone and would like to see additional titles in the digital collection.

    When it completes a chapter or part it doesn't automatically go to the next part

    Wish I didn't have to sign in to my library account 3-5 times to be recognized, but love the ability to listen to books and have my heart place held for each subsequent listening.

    Often prompts repeatedly to sign in, which is annoying. Except for that glitch tho, this is very convenient. high quality audiobook productions. The bookmark feature is handy. I will use this app a lot.

    Love that I can get books right to my phone.
  • by Sherilee 6/27/2015
    I live being able to read books on my phone. Love the app and the only reason I gave it a 4 is because its a little confusing for me to use. Sometimes ill barely touch phone and it'll skip a few chapters. Lately I am not able to search for a certain book. The app will keep kicking me back to sign in page.
