How to Use Overdrive to Listen to AudioBooks

Every OPS staff member can check out books through Overdrive.  To learn more about using Overdrive on your device, visit libguides.ops.org/dpl

A few good things to know about Overdrive and audio books. 

1)  You can listen to them on your computer or on a device.  But, when using audiobooks on the computer, you will have them for the entire 14 day check out period.  If using through the Overdrive app on a device, you can return upon completion.  Just as a reminder, staff members can have two Overdrive items (ebook and/or audiobook) checked out at a time.

2)  If you are using a device and have bluetooth capabilities in your car, you can listen to your book through your car's speakers.  Simply dowload your book of choice to the app when connected to wi-fi.  Then, the book runs through the app without using data on your cell phone plan or requiring a wi-fi connection.  This could be done through a phone or a district issued iPad or Surface.  To connect your device, go to Settings and select Bluetooth.  Don't have bluetooth?  Pump up the volume on your device.
