April 12, 2013 OverDrive Update!

Welcome to the new OverDrive Next Generation platform. 
You’ll notice the new look immediately – and we hope you’ll try out the new features.

If you use one of the OverDrive apps, you may find that, the first time you try to check out an e-book on the new platform, the checkout won’t work.  Here are the steps for successfully completing your first checkout:

1) Select a title and click Borrow
2) OverDrive will prompt you to enter your library barcode and PIN
3) If title is not checked out to you, redo your search , select title and click Borrow again
4) The title should check out properly on your 2nd try
5) From now on, the checkout feature should work on the 1st try

We're excited to offer a collection of fresh, popular titles in downloadable e-book format! Hassle-free e-books can be downloaded in the comfort of your own home and automatically return themselves, so you'll never pay a penny in overdue fees.

You can download OverDrive® e-books to your PC or MAC, or read them on a wide variety of e-readers and other portable devices. You'll find a list of compatible devices, along with downloading instructions and an exciting array of available titles on Ramsey County Library's OverDrive website.
