OverDrive @ EVPL Help: iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad App
Checking out and using OverDrive eBooks and audiobooks from your Apple device is easy with the free app.
Step 1: Establish an Adobe ID
Before you can use the app, you'll need to create an Adobe ID. You can do this for free at www.adobe.com/membership. Remember the ID and password you create.
Step 2: Download the OverDrive Media Console App
Go to the app store from your Apple device and download the OverDrive Media Console app. You can find it by searching for "overdrive." Install and then open the app.
Step 3: Browse Our Catalog
To access our digital catalog from the app, touch the "Get Books +" button at the top, then select the country, state, city, and Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library. EVPL's mobile site will then be added to the list of websites in the app's "Get Books" list.
Or, you can simply open the Safari browser on your device and navigate to www.evpl.org/overdrive.
Find the eBook or audiobook you want by browsing or searching. Only compatible formats will appear, so there is no need to worry about whether a title will work on your device.
Step 4: Checking Out & Downloading
When you find a title you want, touch it, then tap "Add to Cart", then "Proceed to Checkout." Enter your library card number, confirm the checkout, then tap "Download".
The OverDrive app will open and the title will appear in your library. You should be prompted to enter your Adobe ID and password (see Step 1). Tap "Download" to download the book and begin reading or listening.
Deleting Expired Titles
To delete expired titles from your library, tap the "Edit" button at the top, then tap the red delete button next to the title you wish to remove.
