Click for Salisbury Library MVLC Digital Downloads!

Take a digital guided tour of Overdrive Media

Audio books and e-books in the OverDrive Media Consoleâ„¢ format  can be checked out and downloaded 24-hours a day from the convenience of any computer or supporting device. Please note that digital downloads can be enjoyed at home, at work, or when you travel, but are not for use on the computers in the library.

To access digital books at Digital Downloads from MVLC, you will need:

  • A valid Salisbury (or other MVLC library member) library card.
  • Access to the Internet.
  • Free software for the computer and/or device on which you wish to use the material you download. (Click here to review software system requirements and download instructions.)

Step 1: Download & Install Free Software

As a first step, you will need to install free software. Click here to download OverDrive Media Console.

Note that upgrading or uninstalling OverDrive Media Console will not affect any content that you have previously downloaded; all items in your 'Media Library' will be maintained through either process.

Step 2: Activate Your Free Software

Before you use a title checked out from the MVLC Digital Downloads web site, you'll need to activate the software that you downloaded. You only need to activate the software once for each machine on which you'll use the material. See below for more on activation.

OverDrive Media Console

OverDrive Media Console utilizes Windows Media Player® 9 Series or newer to play files. The first time that Windows Media Player attempts to open a DRM-protected file, it will alert you that a Security Update must be performed before the file may be opened. The update takes just a few moments, and must be performed before Microsoft Windows Media Player will allow any DRM-protected files to be played.

For more information on audio books, OverDrive Media Console, and Windows Media Player, click here.

Step 3: Check Out, Download, and Enjoy

You can browse or search the MVLC Digital Downloads web site for downloadable materials. When you locate a title of interest, simply add it to your bookbag and check out the title. For more information on the checkout process, click here.

If a desired title is not available, you may place a hold on the title. For more information on placing a title on hold, click here.

Once you have checked out a title, a download page will be displayed. Click the 'Download' link to start the download. Once the download is complete, you can close your Internet connection and enjoy the materials offline.

You will never accrue late fees with titles you download from MVLC Digital Downloads web site. At the end of the loan period, titles will expire and be automatically 'returned' to the library. At this time, you can delete the expired file(s) from your machine.
