The new OverDrive app – borrow and read easier and faster from your library
OverDrive our eBook provider is also excited to announce that the latest version of the OverDrive app is now available!
Not only did they simplify the name from “OverDrive Media Console” to the “OverDrive app,” but they’ve also included two major enhancements:
- Borrow and read in just two steps! Elimination of the Adobe authorization step from the first-time user setup experience
- Return Open EPUB format books early. Ability to return Open EPUB titles before the end of the lending period
Top tip: When prompted for a library name or postcode in the app enter ‘South Ayrshire Libraries’. Please note – Your library card number and PIN code will be required.
