Frequently Asked Questions about your eReader card

Do I need a special card?  How do I get one?
You need an eReader card, available at any library branch. Just show proof of residence as described on the borrower application, or ask the library staff to allow you to purchase an out-of-area card for $25.00.

Will I need a PIN number?  How do I get one?
Yes. Please ask the staff to look yours up or assign you a new one.

Will the service still work if I have library fines or overdue books on my card?
You will need to clear any fines or overdue books on your card, as they will prevent you from accessing our eBook resources.

How long can I keep an eBook?
You can check out your eBook for 14 days. There are no renewals. eBooks automatically expire after 14 days.

How many library eBooks can I check out at one time?
You can check out up to three eBooks.

What happens when my time is up and my eBooks are due?
Your eBooks will automatically expire when the loan period is over. While the books may still appear in the list on your device, you will be unable to open them.  

What if I want more books?
Scroll down the OverDrive main page to Additional eBooks. These are classic titles in the public domain (like Sherlock Holmes and Jane Austen books) that are always available, never expire, and don’t count against your checkout limit.  These are in EPUB format for Nook, Android, and iOS devices.  For Kindle, you can find the same books at Project Gutenberg.

Are there any overdue fines for eBooks?
No, you will never get an overdue fine on our eBooks, as they expire automatically.

What if I finish my eBooks early?
To return and delete the items, touch and hold the book cover, then select Return (in the app). Visit the Manage my Kindle section on Amazon (for Kindle) or use Adobe Digital Editions (for other eReaders).
