OverDrive makes it easy to checkout, read, annotate and highlight, and return borrowed materials. Instructions on Reading eBooks can be found in the OverDrive Help section; use the drop-down menu to expand the different Help sections. Information on the various devices and reading methods are also provided. Even if you checkout a work, annotate and highlight, but then return the book, you keep your annotations and highlights, with a citation. Simply checkout and read your ebooks in OverDrive Read; your annotations and highlights will always be available under your "History & Notes" section in OverDrive.
