You can borrow eBooks and Audiobooks from Overdrive or Libby for 7 days, 14 days, or 21 days. It's your choice!

You can also set a default lending period for all items in a given format.

 

If you're using OverDrive on your computer or laptop, refer to these instructions, which are also available on the OverDrive help page:

How to change your default lending period

Note: Your new lending period only applies to future checkouts, not titles already checked out.

  • In your library's digital collection, click or tap books icon, then select Settings
    You'll need to be signed into your library to get to this page.
  • Under "Lending periods," choose a default lending period for each format. Your settings are saved automatically.

    Note: Lending period options vary by library.

How to change the lending period for an individual title

  • Click or tap Borrow under a title (or on its details page).
    If prompted, sign in.
  • In the confirmation pop-up, select a lending period from the drop-down. This lending period will be applied to this checkout only.

    Note: Lending period options vary by library.
  • Click or tap Borrow to borrow the title.

 

If you're using Libby, refer to these instructions, which are also available on the Libby help page:

 

Changing the lending period for an individual title:

You can change your loan period for each title when you borrow it. 

After you tap Borrow, tap the underlined loan period on the confirmation page. Then, select a new loan period for that title.

When you pick a new loan period, it'll be your default loan period for future checkouts in that format.
