Changes to our Overdrive Downloadable Audio Books Service

   Thursday, February 21st, 2008 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Digital Audiobooks Downloads with OverdriveIn response to comments from our patrons, the libraries of the MVLC Consortium recently voted to change a few of the borrowing policies for downloadable audio books from our Overdrive library. The new policies are:

  • Books are now checked out for 14 days (instead of just 7)
  • Patrons can now check out up to 5 items at a time (instead of just 3)

The rest of our downloadable audio book policies have not changed. You can browse for and download these books from http://mvlc.lib.overdrive.com.

For assistance with searching or downloading audio books from Overdrive, please contact the Reference Desk.
