The e-books and e-audiobooks of OverDrive make up Wisconsin’s Digital Library. Wisconsin’s Digital Library works with OverDrive to manage digital library collections for public libraries throughout Wisconsin through the Wisconsin Public Library Consortium.
The titles you find on Wisconsin’s Digital Library are the exact same offerings as those found in the OverDrive or Libby apps. The difference is you may go to Wisconsin’s Digital Library on your computer’s web browser to enjoy titles directly or download. You may also take advantage of the OverDrive and Libby apps to take advantage of the digital collection via your smart phone and/or on other supported portable devices.
Please note that Libby is the newer app and is often found to be easier to use than the OverDrive app.
For Kindle Readers
Kindle Readers only support OverDrive e-books. Kindle Fire, Fire HD, or Fire HDX tablets support OverDrive/Libby e-books and e-audiobooks. SEE: Amazon’s Kindle App Help.
