eLibrary: Does UDPL buy extra copies of eBooks & eAudiobooks for UDPL patrons only?

Yes! Always login before you browse as we buy extra copies of hot titles. Also, our copies will only go to fulfill UDPL holds, so even if you have to hold an item, you may get it much sooner than the holds queue number would suggest.

eLibrary: How do I return an eBook or eAudiobook from Overdrive early?

It depends on your device. For the Overdrive app on iDevice or Android, including Kindle Fire: find the cover of the book, tap and hold until you get a menu which will give you the option to return early and delete. For the Kindle Reader, it is located in your Amazon account under Manage your Device. Find the book and click the “…” for options to return early. For more information, check out this article from Overdrive.

eLibrary: May I recommend an ebook & regular book for purchase?

Yes, you can! Be aware, not everything is available for purchase. However, to see what we can purchase, check here for instructions. Alternatively, you may send a message to Reference & Adult Services on our Contact Us page.
