New OverDrive eBooks site launched

New OD websiteOur eBook and eAudio eBook service OverDrive has been updated to include new features, simplified usage and a brand new design.

You’ll still access WCL’s OverDrive website from the same address on your desktop and mobile device at We’ll still provide the same eBook and eAudio content in familiar formats and downloading and streaming options you’re used to.

However, you should notice positive changes:

  • – browsing, subject headings and links to our ‘Kids’ and ‘Teens’ pages are now at the very top of the website
  • – searches now auto complete with suggested options
  • – sign in with your library card and use a simplified account area
  • – availability of eBook and eAudio titles is now clearly labelled

In addition to these changes, there are improvements to renewals, holds and recommendations to the library.

For more information on our new OverDrive website, go to our Help page here, or to watch a video summary of our new OverDrive features click here.

If you need any help, please use our technical support form and we’ll email you a helpful response!

  1. Well done for working to improve the app. I am using the Android version. One thing I would prefer is to have the ‘Sign In’ and ‘Sign Out’ buttons prominently displayed on the library area instead of buried in menus. Also, the app loads the new content and suggested items very slowly – in this way it hasn’t improved. However, the ability to download ebooks and audiobooks is a boon and I enjoy using the app itself very much.
