To checkout and download you need the following things:
A valid Humboldt County Library card.
Internet access, either at home or through Library wireless. You must use your own computer or device. Due to restrictions from Overdrive, you cannot use their software on a Library workstation, but you can use the Library's wireless with your own device.
To get set up for Overdrive the first time, download free Overdrive software. Overdrive Help will take you through this process step by step. (You may also need to update your device's own software if it is out of date.)
