OverDrive eBooks

OverDrive has thousands of eBooks available for our patrons.

Borrow up to 15 items. eBooks automatically expire at the end of the lending period – no returns necessary and you’ll never have to worry about overdue fines.

How does it work?

If you’re on iOSAndroid, or Windows 10 devices, download the new Libby app (great for beginners to download eBooks & Audiobooks) or the original OverDrive app.

If you’re on a Kindle Fire, we suggest downloading the original OverDrive app.

Once the app is installed, find our library (LA County Public Library), then browse our collection, find an eBook, and borrow it using your library card number.

If the book you want is checked out, simply place a hold and you’ll get an email when it’s ready for borrow.

Detailed instructions and help can be found on the OverDrive help page.
