Downloadable Audiobooks and iPods

Important note about Macintosh computers: MP3 audiobooks are only supported on macOS 10.6 (Snow Leopard) through 10.14 (Mojave). OverDrive’s app is not compatible with macOS Catalina. This means that audiobooks can’t be downloaded to a Mac computer running Catalina (or later) for transfer to an MP3 player. OverDrive recommends listening to audiobooks in a web browser or in Libby.

If you have a Windows-formatted iPod, please look over this information first. Also, please be aware that transferring these audiobooks to an iPod will probably be slow because of the conversion process required by the iPod.

If you have an iPod Touch, please see these instructions for iOS (Apple) Mobile Devices. For information about other portable devices, please check this information about compatibility with OverDrive.

What to do if your e-mail address has changed

If you have e-reserves and have changed your e-mail address, you will need to update the e-mail address associated with each of your e-reserves to be sure you receive notification when the books become available. Please follow these steps:

  1. Log into your digital downloads account.
  2. Click on “My account.”
