Do you love books, but don't always have the time to come check them out at the library? OverDrive is the resource for you!

Accessible via our website or through an easy-to-install app, OverDrive offers readers thousands of hot bestsellers, educational textbooks, magazines, comic books, and more. Whether you want to read your books the traditional way, or keep your hands and eyes free, Overdrive has got you covered with e-book and audiobook formats.

"I love OverDrive,” said Clearview Library frequent OverDrive user, Ladawn Rock. “It is very user friendly. I like to listen to a book as a great get-away while doing basic mundane things. And, they have a huge selection to pick from. Fiction, nonfiction, self help, biography — books for all ages.”

Materials on OverDrive are available for download 24/7, anywhere there is a 4G or WiFi connection. When you're done with your checkouts, you can either return the items early through the website/app or wait for the lending periods to run out, when they'll return automatically. No more late fees or hurried nighttime trips to the book drop — you're just done!
