OverDrive has expanded its services with a new digital collection website experience just for kids and teens. The site filters the overall digital collection to just show Children's and Young Adult content, which gets kids and teens to the titles they want faster! 


This service is free for users with a libray card. Digital titles are available anytime, anywhere and expire automatically, so no need to worry about late fees.
