Returning eBooks from a Mobile Device

If you’re using the OverDrive Media Console app to download eBooks directly to your smartphone, tablet or other mobile device, you can return them early and delete them from your device using the app.

Although you never need to return eBooks, returning them early lets you take out more eBooks if you’ve already reached the four-book limit. It also makes the eBook available for other users. If you don’t return books, they will automatically expire when the due date is reached.

MP3 audiobooks can also be returned early from a mobile device. Unfortunately, due to licensing issues, it is not possible to return audiobooks in the WMA format early.
