Device requirements

If your iOS device is running iOS 6.0 or higher, you will download the latest version of the OverDrive Media Console app. This guide is for the latest version of the app. If your device is running an earlier version of iOS, you will download an older version of OverDrive Media Console. Click here for that guide.

Learn how to find out which version of iOS you have on your device.

Install the app & authorize with an Adobe ID

Create an Adobe ID by visiting this website. You may want to write down the email address and password you used, as it's very important that you remember it later when authorizing your device.

Install the OverDrive Media Console app from the App Store.

When you first open the app you will be prompted to authorize it with your Adobe ID. Click on Sign In.

Enter the email address you used for your Adobe ID and password.

The app is now authorized and you can download titles. This is a good time to review your settings for the app. Be sure to turn off Cellular Download if you don't want to use your device's data plan to download titles.

Add your library information

To search for books and to get to your bookshelf, swipe from left to right to see the main menu. The first time you use the app, you need to select your library. After this time, you won't need to see this up again. Tap on Add a library to get started.

Search for your local WCCLS member library by city or zip code.

Choose any WCCLS member library from the list.

Tap the star next to Oregon Digital Library Consortium. This will remember the library so you don't have to go through these steps next time you use the app. Then, tap on Oregon Digital Library Consortium to search for books and access your Library2Go account.

Download your title

This guide assumes you have already checked a title out and are ready to download it to your device. Learn how to do that here.

To get to your Library2Go account, swipe from left to right to see the main menu. Tap on Oregon Digital Library Consortium, then tap on the account icon to log in.

Choose Washington County Cooperative Library Services from the drop-down menu, then enter your whole WCCLS card number, starting with 23614.

Make sure you are viewing your bookshelf (titles you have checked out) by tapping on Bookshelf on the right of the screen. You'll see the title(s) you have checked out. To download the title to the app on your iOS device, tap on Download. From there you will choose the format you need. To use the book in the app on your iOS device, you need to choose the EPUB format for ebooks, or MP3 format for audiobooks. Then tap on Confirm & Download.

Your title will download. This takes just a few minutes for an ebook, but for an audiobook it can take 15 or 20 minutes, depending on the speed of your connection.

When the book is finished downloading it will appear on your bookshelf in the OverDrive app. To read or listen to the book, swipe from left to right to open the main menu. Then, tap on Bookshelf. Tap on the book you want to read or listen to.

Learn how to return titles early. If you don't return them early, they will simply expire off your device and account.
