Now I’ve added the filter “Available now” by clicking the middle button on
top. Notice that the book covers now all show a dark book shape in the top
right corner. For audiobooks, that shape is a pair of earphones. If the shape
is greyed out, that means the item is currently checked out by someone else
and is not available.
When you find the item you want, click on the book cover to go to the
detail page for that title.

your ereader.

To return an item using the mobile Overdrive Media Console App
Click on the plus sign next to the title,
then click Return/Delete.
Note: when you use Overdrive Media Console on a smartphone, tablet, or
other mobile device, you are seeing the mobile version of the OK Virtual
Library website. That version will only show items available in EPUB and
MP3 format. It will not show items available in WMA or Kindle format.
Music available for checkout from OK Virtual Library is only available in
WMA format.
WORKAROUNDS: (use at your own risk)
To see everything available in the OK Virtual Library on a mobile
device or tablet, you must use an alternate browser, such as Chrome,
which will show the desktop version of the website and will show all
the formats available for checkout.
You can download the free Kindle reader app on your
smartphone or tablet to read books in Kindle format.
To listen to WMA files, you must have an app that will play them—
they are Windows Media Audio files and are intended to be played
with Windows Media Player. Apps that might work on an Android
device are PowerAmp and WinAmp—we have not been able to test
them. The other option is to download an app that will convert WMA
files into MP3 files.
We recommend that if you want to check out music from the OK
Virtual Library, you use a computer to check it out. You can either
listen to it on your computer using Windows Media Player, or transfer
it to an MP3 player using the Overdrive Media Console app on your
We don’t recommend checking out WMA files on a tablet.
