eBooks

Overdrive

Overdrive gives students and staff access to both eBooks and audio books.  Most of the eBook and audio book resources are chapter books for our older students.  Although Finch students can see all content, as elementary students they will only be allowed to check out elementary level media.  (High school, middle school, and elementary school students all have access to Overdrive.)

Overdrive ebooks and audio books can be downloaded to most ereaders.  Just click on the “Help” link on the overdrive page to get instructions on how to download media to your devices, and to find support in troubleshooting any problems you have.

This is how our students will log in:

*      Library Card Number:  s(student ID number)
— Example: s123456

*       PIN:  Eight digit birthdate
— Example:  04091999
