E-Books from Georgia Download Destination


Get e-books from OverDrive via Georgia Download Destination. The library has a number of popular titles for you to download.

iOS 7 users note: When an existing OverDrive Media Console (OMC) user upgrades to iOS 7, the app will fail when trying to open a DRM-protected eBook. New or first time users of OMC are unaffected by this issue meaning that if you download the app for the first time post-iOS7 update you will not experience this issue.

Overdrive is resolving the issue but in the meantime, the immediate remedy for users is to uninstall and re-install OMC which will also require the user to re-authorize with Adobe. IMPORTANT NOTE: A re-install will clear a user’s bookshelf, history, and app settings.

Refer to the iOS section of this Help article for assistance.

Audiobook users won’t notice that anything is different unless they attempt to download parts of audiobooks they already downloaded to OMC before upgrading to iOS 7. A user will receive an error message informing them to download the title again.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Note: For the best reading experience, Overdrive recommend using a browser that natively supports the HTML5 and CSS3 features required to display OverDrive Read eBooks, such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Internet Explorer 10.

If you are using and older browser like IE8 and IE9, Please follow this instructions.
