Q. Why am I being asked to pay?
If you use the OverDrive app directly, you are actually using their consumer product, in which OverDrive has no way of verifying whether you are a library patron.
Q. How do I check out a magazine?
Search for a title or browse by genre directly from the state library site. This is important and the only way you can be verified as a library user.
Click "Checkout Now" directly below the issue cover
OverDrive will prompt you to either "Keep Browsing" or "Start Reading." If you choose to start reading, you will be directed to "Your Library" on OverDrive.com.
Then just download the OverDrive from the app store associated with your device.
Q. How many magazines can I check out at one time?
You can checkout as many magazines as you want - there is no limit!
Q. How long can I check out magazines for?
There is no time limit. Once you check out a magazine, it will remain in your library until you delete it.
Q. How do I report technical difficulties?
OverDrive (the company that provides the digital magazine service) has a support request page here
