How to Use OverDrive for Audio Books

Return OverDrive Audio Books

  • OverDrive audio books can be checked out for 7, 14, or 21 days. To change your lending period, sign in to your account, then click Account, then Settings. Once the book expires you will no longer be able to access it. There are no late fees or renewals for audio books.
  • Since you can only check out up to 5 books at a time, you may want to return books early.
  • To return a book that you downloaded on your computer, open OverDrive Media Console and right click on your book and select Delete. Then click Return/Delete.
  • To return a book that you downloaded on your mobile device, open the OverDrive Media Console app and navigate to your bookshelf. Click on the + icon next to your book, select Return/Delete, then select Return then Delete.
