clolHayner Library is pleased to announce that we have added OverDrive to our collection of free digital resources for patrons with a Hayner Library card! In July, Hayner Library joined the Digital Library of Illinois, a consortium that provides e-book, audiobook, and digital magazine access to patrons of participating libraries through the OverDrive digital platform. Patrons can access OverDrive in two ways: online and through OverDrive’s Libby app.

For help accessing OverDrive online or through the Libby app, please visit the library's website and click on Download Audio & ebooks or Help With Your eReader links. Digital Library of Illinois’ OverDrive platform offers patrons access to over 86,000 titles in e-book, audiobook, and digital magazine format!

OverDrive is also the exclusive digital e-book provider delivering Kindle compatibility to public libraries in the United States, making it easy for Kindle owners to read e-books on their devices.

Digital magazines are also available in OverDrive, covering news, politics, fitness, health, cooking, technology, gaming, crafts, hobbies, sports, family, parenting, fashion, celebrity, and travel. Specific titles include Family Tree Magazine, The New Yorker, Reader’s Digest, The Economist, Newsweek, Harper’s, Prevention, Men’s Health, Women’s Health, Yoga, Cook’s Illustrated, Bon Appetit, Taste of Home, Wired, PC Magazine, Popular Mechanics, Crochet!, CrossStitcher, Golf, Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Allure, Marie Claire, US, Star, In Touch Weekly, National Geographic Traveller, and hundreds more, including many international titles!
