Listening to MP3 audiobooks now that the OverDrive app is discontinued

On May 1, 2023, OverDrive discontinued the OverDrive app. This means that the OverDrive app is no longer available for anyone to install on their computers, smartphones, or tablets.

If you happen to have the OverDrive app installed, it may still work for you, and you can try to use it to transfer audiobooks to your MP3 player. You will see an option on MP3 audiobooks on the OverDrive website to listen to an MP3 audiobook in the OverDrive app. This will only work if you already have that app. 

Please keep in mind that if you ever uninstall it or get a new device, you won't be able to install the OverDrive app again.

OverDrive is a subscription service the Library provides, and how it works is completely managed by OverDrive itself. The Library does not have control over how their system works and cannot reinstate the OverDrive app.
