The San Antonio Public Library's guide to Libby, Kanopy, digital magazines, and more!

What is OverDrive?


OverDrive is the name of the company that provides SAPL with a digital reading platform. With the OverDrive service, SAPL users have access to enjoy ebooks, audiobooks, magazines, and other streaming media. 


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.

Looking for an app? The Libby app can be used to search or browse, borrow, and read materials. To get started using Libby check out the information listed on the Libby page of this guide.
