Check out our new eMedia catalog, with one-step checkout and more,your eMedia experience is about to get even better!

We’ve made it faster and more intuitive to connect you to the books you love. The steps below are designed to answer your questions and help you get acquainted with the new experience.

How to find a title to borrow

From the homepage, there are several ways for you to find a title to enjoy.
  • Select a cover image from any of the lists.

    1. Click a link from the Menu.

    2. Search for something you want.

    You can quickly tell which titles are available and which ones you can place on hold by the format icon in the top-right corner of a cover image. If a title isn’t available, the icon will be greyed out.

    How borrowing works

    Borrowing and reading titles is much easier. It takes only a few seconds to find a title and start reading. Accessing any borrowed title from your Bookshelf only requires a few clicks or taps.

    • eBooks: Click Borrow then Go to Bookshelf (you may be prompted to sign in) to read the title in your browser or download. If you want additional borrowing options, select a different format from the Bookshelf on your Account page.

    • Additional formats (your library may offer audiobooks, video, or music): Select the title you want, click (or tap) Borrow, then download it from your Bookshelf.

      Note: To download additional formats, you'll need to install OverDrive Media Console or Adobe Digital Editions.

    I can read eBooks from my browser?

    OverDrive Read is a new in-browser-eBook reader. It works just like any eBook reading app, except you don’t need to activate or install extra software. Interested in learning more? Check out our Help site.
