What is a 'digital audio book'?
A 'digital audio book' is a digital version of an audio book that is rights-protected and optimized for download.
How long will a title in my My Cart remain there?
Once you add a title to your My Cart, it will remain there for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, the title will be returned to the collection, making it available to other patrons at your library.
How many titles can I have checked out at a time?
You can have up to 5 titles checked out at one time. These titles remain on your account for the full borrowing period; you may not return them early.
Once the lending period is over, what happens to the title I checked out?
Once the lending period has elapsed, the title is automatically 'returned' to the library. Although the file(s) will remain on your machine, the file(s) will no longer be accessible. You may not return items early. If you are finished with it you can delete it from your files by:
Opening OverDrive Media Console.
Locating the audio book you wish to delete in the 'Media Library'. Single-click on the title to select it, then click the 'Delete' button.
Can I renew my items?
Your items cannot be renewed, but you can check them out again if they are available when your checkout expires.
You do not need to download the actual media files a second time
