OverDrive Lending Periods Change & Mobile Site

Two exciting new features are coming to the Digital Download Center website!

Lending Periods Change

Effective May 1st, patrons will have new options available for their OverDrive downloadable media lending periods.  They will be able to set their own default lending period on a format-by-format basis. However, if the patron does not set any lending period, the systemwide default for all formats will continue to be 7 days. The patron will have the following options:

Lending period options for Adobe EPUB eBooks, Adobe PDF eBooks, OverDrive WMA Audiobooks, OverDrive MP3 Audiobooks:

  • 7 days
  • 14 days

Lending period options for OverDrive WMA Music, OverDrive WMV Video:

  • 3 days
  • 5 days
  • 7 days
  • 14 days

Additionally, at the time of checkout, a patron can select a lending period on a title-by-title basis.

[This does not change the fact that most materials cannot be returned early. Only Adobe® eBooks may be returned early, and instructions for doing so are available.]

Mobile Site

Also effective May 1, the Digital Download Center website will be easier to view with a mobile phone. Mobile devices viewing dbooks.wplc.info will automatically display the mobile version of the site. This means it should be easier to browse books, check out, and download for use with one of the mobile apps that are available for Android, Blackberry, iPhone, or Windows Mobile phones.
