10 OverDrive Tips
1) This page has up-to-date login information, as well as a login portal you can access OverDrive with from any computer. On the right side of this site, it has guides for most handheld devices.
2) OverDrive has a new app called Sora that is easier to use than the OverDrive app many of you have used. Both the Sora app and the OverDrive app are able to use your district account and your Idaho Falls Public Library account simultaneously.
3) If you download the app: When you get to the login screen, you will see the option of I am under 13 at the bottom. Click this if you don’t want to setup an account or if your child using this is under 13.
4) When you add a library to the app, type: Bonneville
*Just make sure you choose the Bonneville that says Idaho Falls under it, or your account information will not work (there is also a Bonneville in Utah).
5) Students may access books from any device with an internet connection.
6) When downloading books to the OverDrive app, choose ePub.
7) To return a book online, go to your bookshelf and simply click return title. To return a book from the app: Go to your bookshelf, press and hold your finger on the book jacket for 3 seconds, then choose the option "return title."
8) Titles automatically return themselves after two weeks. You will never be assessed a late fine because the software generates automatic returns.
9) You may have 3 books out at a time. If you keep returning titles when you are finished with them, you are not limited to 3 books during the two weeks. Project Gutenberg titles are unlimited.
10) Once you download the titles to the app or your computer, you don’t need an internet connection to read the books. Therefore, if you are going on a family vacation download books before you leave, return them once you are at your destination, then check out new ones for the ride home.
