OverDrive Library eBooks
To start, you will need a library card for a library which is also an OverDrive partner. You can search for a local library through the OverDrive website.
Most libraries will only issue a library card to local residents, but a handful do issue cards to non-residents. You’ll of course need to get a library ebook before checking out any ebooks, and for that you’ll need to check with the library.
