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.

    I say this to everything I get, but Everyone should get this.

    I really like this, but ever since the last update I have to log on 2 or 3 times before it lets me in. Then sometimes it logs me back out again. Very frustrating to say the least. Please fix

    Good, except for one thing. I have to keep logging into my account. It takes multiple attempts to get logged in, and then when I switch screens, I have to log in again multiple times. So annoying.

    It was a bit confusing at first but now I love it, its great and Convenient to have your favorite books right there on your phone
  • by Colleen 11/16/2014
    I read or listen to 90% of my books through this app. Just like the beauty of having a library card where books are free now I have the Library on my phone and computer. A few glitchy things with the app but the developer keeps improving. That is why I gave it 4 stars and not 5.

    It works pretty well but sometimes it's a little slow. I read a lot more now thanks to this app!
