Overdrive offers some great features that can enhance your digital experience.
Wish List -- When you're browsing and come across something you'd like to get later, add it to your wish list -- just click on the link next to the title. Now you can browse when you have the time and get titles from your wish list when you're in a hurry!
Rate the Title -- Did you really love that ebook? Rate it! Did you hate the reader on that audiobook? Rate it! There are rating stars next to each Overdrive title. Give your own thumbs up or thumbs down. Previous ratings always show, so you can see how others liked a title.
Recommend Titles -- You can also search 'Additional Titles' in our Overdrive catalog for books that we don't have. Then with a simple click you can recommend that we purchase it and it to the collection. You can also get automatically added to the hold list if we do get it!
Share It -- Share your favorite titles with others via email, Facebook or Twitter. Links are located in the title's full record.
Try It Out -- Of course, you can always read, listen to, or watch excerpts for Overdrive titles. No more wondering if this title is right for you!
Buy It -- If you don't want to wait for a checked out book to be available, you have the option to buy the book instantly. If you decide to buy the book, going to a bookseller through our site means that a portion of the sale goes back to the library for the express purpose of buying more eBooks. It's a win/win!
