Borrow eBooks & more from OverDrive

What is OverDrive?


OverDrive is a service offered by the San Antonio Public Library which includes eBooks, magazines, and audio books for download; as well as movies for streaming. 


The Libby app can be used to search or browse, borrow, and read materials. OverDrive digital library materials can also be borrowed and read using a web browser (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and others) by going to the San Antonio Public Library OverDrive website and signing in with your library card. Additionally, library users can now search for and borrow OverDrive digital library materials using the library catalog, and items borrowed from OverDrive now appear in your online library account information.

To get started using Libby check out the information listed on the Libby page of this guide.

OverDrive & Libby

The Libby app is an application which can be used to browse, borrow, and access the San Antonio Public Library collection of OverDrive ebooks, audio books, and magazines in a format that is designed especially for mobile devices.

OverDrive also offers a full-featured, robust, in-web browser borrowing and reading/listening experience with OverDrive Read and OverDrive Listen formats which can be accessed and borrowed from the San Antonio Public Library's OverDrive website.
