eBook Renewals!

Have you ever wished you could renew eBooks and audio eBooks? Well, now you can!

Here's how it works.

If you have an eBook or audio eBook checked out -- and there is no one else on hold for that item -- you will have the option to renew it! There are a few details that you should know about:

  • You can only renew if there is no hold list for the item.
  • You will have the option to renew three days before the title is scheduled to expire.
  • You may only renew one title at a time.
  • Even if there is a holds list, you can click the grayed out Renew button to get on the waitlist again.

More information about OverDrive's renewal feature is available on their help site.

Happy eReading!

Did you get this through Overdrive? We are an international school and use Overdrive but I don't see a renewal. I'd love this feature for my patrons. Can you let me know and I'll contact Overdrive if it is the same company. I am a school librarian in Taiwan. Thanks!


Yes, this is a feature through Overdrive. If you don't have it yet, I'd recommend contacting your Overdrive Account Specialist.
