OverDrive is the service used by more than 15,000 libraries to provide digital and audiobook access to their patrons. The OverDrive Media Console is a universal app for iPhone/iPod touch and iPad that will let you locate a nearby library offering OverDrive books, let you search their offerings, and check out books using a valid library card. You won’t even have to go to the library to check out books. You can read or listen to the books in the app. There’s no worry about overdue books, because access to the books expires on the due date. You’ll even have access to free, out-of-copyright books through the OverDrive app. The OverDrive Media Console app is free in the iTunes app store.
