Digital Books

The Garrett Public Library, in partnership with the Northeast Indiana Digital Library (NIDL), is proud to offer a collection of over 8,000 digital books and audiobooks spanning all genres and interests. We have adopted the powerful yet intuitive Overdrive application to bring this to you. Getting started is easy!

First, download the Overdrive app for your device of choice:


You will be asked to sign up for an OverDrive account. This account is separate from your library account. This step will require a valid email. Once signed on, press the OverDrive button in the top-left corner. Under the “Libraries” heading, choose to add a library and search for Garrett. Once added, your library account will now be synched with both the Overdrive app and NIDL homepage.

Second, visit the NIDL homepage.

Choose “Sign In” in the top-right corner. Locate “Garrett Public Library” under the library drop-down menu. You will now be asked to sign in with your patron ID and your PIN number. If you do not know either of these numbers, library staff can assist you.

Need help? Library staff would be glad to assist you. Alternatively, the OverDrive help center linked below has tutorials on everything you need to get started.
