Note: DCLS has recently enrolled in the Advantage program with OverDrive. This means we are able to purchase extra copies of popular titles that will be accessible only to DCLS users. We will also be able to purchase titles not available to the shared collection, such as those published by Hachette Digital and Minotaur (Macmillan). David Baldacci and Sandra Brown are two authors whose more recent work we were unable to purchase before Advantage. To see and download these titles, log in at the OverDrive site with your DCLS library card. There is no change to downloading or loan periods with this new program, just more titles to choose from!

eBooks and downloadable audiobooks can be enjoyed at home, at work, or when you travel, but are not for use on the library’s computers. Please note that eBooks and downloadable audiobooks can be downloaded inside the library on your own wireless device. Please be patient as the library builds a collection of materials in this emerging format. Please note that not all titles are produced in all formats for public libraries. If you need the title right away, check your local library catalog for print or CD availability.
Your library is pleased to provide access to a great collection of downloadable ebooks and audiobooks through our agreement with OverDrive, Inc., a global digital distributor of eBooks & audiobooks and Library Ideas, LLC, distributor of the eBook service Freading.
OverDrive, Inc. works with publishers and producers of content to determine what titles are available for public libraries to purchase or license.
Publishers make large portions of their back catalogs available to Freading for checkout to library users. However, the selection of newly released bestsellers is limited.
The DCLS selection of ebook and audiobook titles that are available is limited and can change at any time.
