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.

    Excellent! I never thought I would like audio books but they're great . I don't like that I sign in and it signs me out over and over

    Its a great app! I love being able to read anywhere and not have to carry around a book!. I don't know what I would do without it! Plus when I read on my phone.. my little one doesn't want to turn my pages and "read" 😊

    Easy to use format, and tons of books to borrow. Makes listening to audio books a snap.

    I love this app! I was against electronic reading devices and this app is starting to change my mind, it is so convenient. The only down fall is I have to sign in multiple times before I can access my account.

    Reader has some refresh quirks. Have to change focus then go back to app to display. But overall very happy with app.

    Good link to my library. Great for reading on the go. For me the OverDrive WP8 navigation is not as intuitive as on the iPad mini but very manageable.

    To get this app to work this is what I've found...i hope this helps other WP users :) btw i have the local library saved and my user info saved on the library link. Download the CountyCat mobile app. Search for book, must say electronic resource. Click access book. You're redirected your public library and the book is shown. Click borrow. My lib card info info is saved so it automatically redirects me to my page. Go to bookshelf and download as epub. That puts it in this apps bookshelf. I hope this helps. Its a lil pain but its a work around. I emailed my local lib and they are aware...maybe someone will update it soon.
