OverDrive…get reading!


It’s come to my attention that some Upper School students and staff are unfamiliar with OverDrive.

That’s about to change…



OverDrive is our eBooks provider


Students: your Overdrive username and password are the same.

Staff: similar to above, please use your Staff ID number (including a capital ‘P’) as both your Library card number and your password.


Once you’re on the homepage, you can browse the books via subjects, recommended lists, etc. Click on a book and find out more about it; does this sound like a book you’d like to read? If so, borrow it! If you haven’t already readĀ Wonder then borrow it…and watch the film afterwards. Same thing goes forĀ Little Women (many movies have been made from this novel, including one that’s out in theatres right now).

When it comes to borrowing books on OverDrive, you can borrow 2 at a time and you have a 1-2 week borrowing period (you can set your loan period within ‘settings’). You can also put a hold on a book and you will be notified via email when that book becomes available.

**Please note: If you have downloaded a book, it cannot be returned until the return date. However, if you read the book in your browser (and do not download it), it can be returned at any time.**

You can download the OverDrive app for Android, iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire HD, and Windows 8

Unfortunately OverDrive is incompatible with KindlePaperwhite or original Kindle
