Overdrive eBooks - South Jersey Audiobook and eBook Download Center

Check out eBooks and eAudiobooks through Overdrive! This service is provided by the South Jersey Regional Library Cooperative.

NOTE: Overdrive & Libby will no longer automatically checkout items when the hold becomes available. Got too many eBooks and eAudiobooks to read? You now have the flexibility of Hold Redelivery which allows you to choose to have a hold redelivered to you at a later date! Read more about this feature here: https://bit.ly/3coD2x7


Overdrive App

Ready to begin downloading eBooks and eAudiobooks? Download the Overdrive App to get started. It is available for iOS, Android, Windows and Mac OSX.


Please note the app is no longer available for Nook Color and the original Nook Tablet models.

Libby App

Libby is designed to make borrowing and enjoying eBooks and audiobooks easier than ever. You can use Libby in place of, or in addition to, the OverDrive app.

More information about the app can be found on the Meet Libby website.


Adobe Digital Editions

Want to read just eBooks? You can also choose to download Adobe Digital Editions. ADE also allows you to read eBooks you have purchased from different apps and sites (such as iBooks or the Play Store). Downloading this is recommended if you will be downloading and purchasing books from a variety of sources.

ADE also allows you to transfer eBooks onto an eReader that doesn't support the app such as the Nook Color & Tablet.

Overdrive Read

Don't want to have to download anything to get started reading or listen? Then Overdrive Read is for you! After you borrow a title, go to your library bookshelf where you can simply select "Read (in your browser)" or "Listen (in your browser)" and you can get started. Titles you choose to read through Overdrive Read cannot be read offline; you will need an internet connection.
