OverDrive: All You Need to Know!: Renew or Return

Process of how to checkout, download, and read e-books in the Overdrive database.


Returning books

Books are automatically returned to the library on their due date. When they're returned, they're also removed from your Loans and deleted from your device (if downloaded).

If you finish a book early, you can return it before its due date using the steps below:

  1. Go to Shelf > Loans.
  2. Click "Return."
  3. Click "Return Title"


Returning Kindle Books

You can return Kindle Books like any other book in Libby.

If you'd prefer, you can return Kindle Books from Amazon instead:

  1. Go to your "Manage Your Content and Devices" page on Amazon.
  2. Find the title in the "Your Content" list, then tap more icon.
  3. Tap Return this book in the pop-up window.
  4. Select Yes to confirm and return the book.

Renewing titles

You can renew a title a few days before it's due using these steps:

  1. Go to Shelf > Loans.
  2. Tap Manage Loan.
  3. If you've borrowed the book from multiple libraries, select the due date for the copy you'd like to renew.
  4. Tap Renew Loan, then Renew.
