About Overdrive

Browse the entire MCLS digital collection today for tens of thousands of popular titles for free. Check out and download audiobooks, eBooks, magazines, music and videos right to your personal device! 

Libby

Libby is built by OverDrive, who also developed the classic OverDrive app. Both apps let you borrow the same free digital content from your library. However, Libby was designed to make finding, borrowing, and enjoying free ebooks and audiobooks easier than ever.
