Additional Help Resources

Need Help with Overdrive?

Extensive Help Documentation is available on the Overdrive (via the South Jersey Audiobook and eBook Download Center) website. This Help section describes how to use the site, the Adobe Digital Editions software, the Overdrive Media Console, which devices are compatible with Overdrive eBooks, and more.

Having trouble accessing Overdrive on your Nook Color or Nook Tablet? Please note that Overdrive is no longer supported on these devices and Barnes and Noble has discontinued the Nook Store, so the app is now obsolete and website inaccessible. You can continue to download eBooks through Overdrive by connnecting your Nook to a computer or laptop. Detailed instructions are available on the Overdrive Help website. This does not affect the Nook HD models or the Samsung Galaxy Tab for Nook models.

Need Help with Hoopla?

Extensive Help Documentation is available on the Hoopla site. This FAQ describes how to adjust your account settings, stream content, handles technical questions, and more.
