You can access Overdrive e-books one of two ways:

Log in with your library card barcode number. Your PIN is the last four digits of your library card barcode number. 

Some Overdrive e-books have waitlists. There is a limit of 5 loans at a time and 5 holds at a time. You may search for a particular e-book, or browse the e-books.

Overdrive also offers audiobooks, so double check that you're borrowing the correct format.

Hoopla Digital

Read e-books on your tablet or phone with the free Hoopla Digital app

You may also read these e-books in your Internet browser at HooplaDigital.com

Click "Get Started Today" to set up an account using your email address and library card number. Your PIN is the last 4 digits of your library card number. You may check out up to five Hoopla items per month. 

Hoopla e-books never have waitlists.  However, if the library-wide daily budget cap has been reached, you will get an error message when you try to check out an item.  In that case, try to check your item out again the next day, or anytime after midnight. 

Search for a particular e-book, browse the e-books or check our our staff recommendations for Hoopla. Hoopla also offers audiobooks, so double check that you are borrowing the correct format.
