Get eBooks and audiobooks from your library with OverDrive Media Console.
Download eBooks and audiobooks from your library to your Windows 8 device! OverDrive Media Console gives you on-the-go access to eBooks and audiobooks from your public, school, or college library. More than 22,000 libraries worldwide offer best-selling and classic titles via OverDrive, so use the 'Get Books' feature from 'Search Charm' in the app to find a library near you.
How do library eBooks and audiobooks work?
Digital titles from your library are borrowed just like print material. Once you find your library, you can browse your library's digital collection website in the browser, check out a title with a valid library card, and download the title directly to your Windows 8 device.
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 15,000 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'll discover timeless books and find yourself reading more than ever before with this diverse collection.
You can also download DRM-free EPUB eBooks from other online sources and read them in the OverDrive Media Console app.
Want more books?
Each library builds a custom digital collection of eBooks and audiobooks specifically for their local community. Contact your library and let them know that you are using OverDrive Media Console on your Windows 8 device and would like to see additional titles in the digital collection.
