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.

    Sadly no access to OneDrive or sdcard. Only allows access to libraries or else this would be a wonderful app

    Appreciate the convenience and low (no) cost of this app.

    So nice to be able to borrow Kindle books through the library. Only wish they were easier to return once finished. It would make the wait lists much shorter for other users.

    I am enjoying this. App. I just wished. It were more user friendly when down loading more than one book. It has been a treasure hunt, but well worth it.

    Love getting mp3 books quickly easily and free eBooks don't download onto my device but I can read them in the browser.

    Spotty play of audio books. Can't delete & reload easily.

    I love this app and my local digital library. Using Bluetooth in my car I can listen to audio books on my many trips up and back from Vegas.

    Works relatively well but on occasion the chapters do not load properly and I need to close the program. It works fine once I do but it can get annoying.
