OverDrive is provided by Kentucky Libraries Unbound, a consortium of 96 Kentucky libraries that gives their patrons 24/7 access to a growing collection of digital media, all of which can be checked out free of charge.

At the end of the lending period, digital checkouts are automatically returned to the library's catalog, so there are never any late fees.  A hold can be placed on the item, and when it becomes available, an email is automatically sent to the person requesting the title.

Card holders can go directly to http://kyunbound.lib.overdrive.com/.  There, they can install the necessary free media software, browse the collection and download up to 12 titles at one time.

Boyle County Public Library cardholders have immediate access to a collection of eBooks & eAudiobooks from Kentucky Libraries Unbound.

You may download to your personal computer and can also download to selected portable devices through app store (tablets, eReaders and Smart Phones).
