Overdrive Step-By-Step Guide

Step 1: Sign in

Click on the “Sign In” link in the upper right hand corner of the page. Enter “Rolla” into the library’s name and select “Rolla Public Library.” Enter your library card number (barcode on your card) and your PIN (the last four digits of your library card number) and then click the “Sign In” button.

Step 2: Advanced Search

Click on the “Advanced Search” link underneath the search box and fill in information to narrow your search.

For example, if you have a Kindle, choose “Kindle Book” under “All Formats.”

If you want a book right away, make sure to check mark the box to the left of the Show me option “Only titles with copies available.”

Click on “Search” when you have finished your selections.

Step 3: Check out

Once you’ve found a book you’d like to check out, click on it and then click on the “Borrow” icon. This will redirect you to your bookshelf of everything you have checked out and will also be where you download the books.

Step 4: Download

You can choose either the “Read” option to read the book through a web browser or you can choose to “Download” the book in order to move it to a different device.

Downloading a Kindle Book

Make a selection and click on “Confirm & Download.” A new window will open through Amazon.com where you will click on “Get library book” and after logging into Amazon.com with the e-mail address that the device is registered under, the book will appear on the device within minutes.
**Please note: Some Kindle titles will need to be transferred via USB**

Downloading an EPUB eBook

You will need to download Adobe Digital Editions to read EPUB eBooks or OverDrive Media Console for audiobooks. These can be found on the www.molib2go.org website and you will need to create a free Adobe ID. Once you find the title and choose the format, click on “Confirm & Download,” and the title will download into Adobe Digital Editions. Plug in your device via USB and drag and drop the title to your device. Unplug and enjoy when download is finished.
