OverDrive

WELCOME TO OUR NEW OVERDRIVE COLLECTION!

Wauconda Area Library now has its own OverDrive collection of eBooks, downloadable Audiobooks, and much more! The library still participates in the MyMediaMall group of regional libraries, and access to that service remains the same. Our new service is separate from MyMediaMall, but the OverDrive App syncs BOTH "libraries" to make things EASY for you.

What is the difference between the two collections? Both collections use the OverDrive platform and work the same. However, the library's OverDrive collection has nearly 2000 titles that are available ONLY to Wauconda Area Library patrons, while MyMediaMall has about 26,500 titles that are available to ALL the patrons of the 58 participating libraries.  If you want the most popular titles fast, the library's new OverDrive collection is your best bet.  With our new OverDrive, we can now purchase multiple copies of high-demand titles for downloading or streaming, and these will be available only to our library card holders!

The “add a library” portion of the app is the most important part of the setup process to get easy access to both collections. Here are links to OverDrive's instructions:
