Using OverDrive with the Alachua County Library District
Download the classic OverDrive Media Console app
from the app store. It is free.
Open OverDrive Media Console.
Touch the menu at the bottom.
Touch App Settings at the bottom of the screen.
To authorize your device, you need an Adobe ID. If you
don’t already have one, touch Get a free Adobe ID.
The browser opens to the page for Adobe account
creation. Fill out the required fields and click Create.
Once you have finished signing up for an Adobe ID,
return to the OverDrive app to Authorize.
Touch the menu button and then the Get Books
button.
Touch Add a Library at the bottom of the screen.
Search for your library by entering Alachua County
Library District or your zip code.
Select the library from the list.
Tap the star beside the library to make it a favorite (so
you don’t have to do this step again).
Tap the library’s name beside the star to go into our
OverDrive collection.
You will now see our OverDrive collection.
If you haven’t yet used the new OverDrive, you’ll want
to Sign In first thing, to set your lending periods.
You will be asked to enter your library card number (no
spaces, no dashes) and PIN. Tap Sign In.
From your Account page, tap Settings.
Set the lending periods to your preferences and tap
Done. Checkout periods will rely on your settings here.
Now you can either search or Browse for titles you’re
interested in.
Available titles will show a dark gray icon at the top
right corner. Unavailable titles will show light gray.
Tap Available Now to show only items available right
away.
Tap the cover of a book and then tap Borrow. If you
see only Place a Hold, the title is checked out.
Many titles can be Read in your browser.
If you would rather read the book in the OverDrive app,
tap on Download and select EPUB.
You will see the message “Loading New Title,” followed
by a notification that your download has finished.
When your book is done downloading, tap the menu
button and then the bookshelf.
Tap the cover to open the book and start reading.
Congratulations on your first download!
