A small collection of PCC Library audiobooks and ebooks are now available through OverDrive. To borrow these books, you will first need to install either the Libby App on your device. Check these device-specific instructions for step-by-step guidance on installation.
After a successful installation, you can browse for audiobooks or ebooks from your desktop or the Libby App. You can also customize your listening experience by speeding up or slowing down audiobook narration.

Use the OverDrive help to get started with borrowing audiobooks and ebooks from the PCC collection. You can access OverDrive from your desktop or the Libby app. Listen or read them online, or you can download them for offline use. See Get Help with Audiobooks for additional information about borrowing, renewing, and returning audiobooks. See Get Help with Ebooks for information about borrowing ebooks.
If you use a screenreader, the OverDrive interface is probably easier to navigate than the Libby app at this time. Please see more information about using OverDrive with a screenreader.
If you use the OverDrive app to read library ebooks or audiobooks, you may want to switch to the Libby app. You can download the Libby app now. The Libby app has improved support for screen readers, voice control, keyboard navigation, and other assistive technologies (view Libby’s accessibility statement.). It will also send you notifications when your holds are ready or when a digital book is going to expire. If you have wish lists on OverDrive, you can sync them to Libby following these directions: Does my library wish list sync to Libby?
On February 23, 2022, the OverDrive app will be removed from the Apple App Store, Google Play, and the Microsoft store. Download links for the legacy OverDrive desktop app for Windows and Mac will also be removed from overdrive.com/apps. Everyone will be encouraged to transition to Libby by the end of 2022.
If you already have the OverDrive app downloaded, you will still be able to use it without disruption, but new downloads of the app will not be available after February 23, 2022. You can also continue to access PCC ebooks and audiobooks on the library’s OverDrive website.
