MP3 Audio Book Return Now Available

OverDrive has released a new version of OverDrive Media Console for Windows computers.

With the latest version of OverDrive Media Console for Windows, library patrons now have the option to early-return MP3 audiobooks.

The updated desktop application—OMC v3.2.2—allows users to return MP3 audiobooks before the end of the specified lending period, a feature that will allow Windows users to devour even more audiobooks from our library’s digital collection.

For OMC v3.2.3, the system requirements have not changed. Readers can install the free app on computers running Windows XP (or newer), and users with OverDrive Media Console already installed will be notified that an update is available.

Find the updated app at

Be sure to read the comments for the steps on how to return an MP3 audiobook early!

It would be great if someone actually told us all HOW to do this. I haven't been able to figure it out, and I'll bet I'm not alone.

If you've finished with an MP3 audiobook early, you also have the option of returning it to your library. Just select the title you want to return, then click Delete.

Note: You can select more than one title by holding down the Ctrl key and clicking on audiobooks that you want to remove.

Once you click Delete a dialog will appear giving you the option to both return and delete the title or titles.

Click Return/Delete to both return and delete the audiobook(s).

Note: At this time, only MP3 audiobooks may be returned to your library.
