Check out new and popular books using OverDrive

October 13, 2020

Did you know there are multiple ways to check out new and bestselling fiction, nonfiction, and graphic novels online through the library?

In addition to our existing ebook collections, you can now borrow popular ebooks and audiobooks with OverDrive, the platform used in many public libraries across the country.

Browse our selection at, or use the Libby app to link to your University of Michigan Library account. You’ll need your U-M login credentials to borrow items.

For more on how to use the service and its borrowing terms, see our guide to online recreational reading.

This service is in testing mode, so for now we’re offering access to only a limited number of books through OverDrive. Most books have a default checkout period of 21 days.
