How do I loan the content on OverDrive?
To borrow content you need to sign in to Overdrive using your MWS login details. Items can be borrowed for up to two weeks. If an item is currently in use, you can place a hold to be notified when the item becomes available. If there are no holds on the item, you will be able to renew your loan.
