Lend and Demo eBook Devices

OverDrive Test Drive is a program that enables libraries and schools to offer eBook devices for lending and demonstration.
OverDrive provides guidelines, recommendations, best practices and promotional materials to help you successfully integrate eBook devices into your everyday services, all within publisher copyrights and library policies.

Educate your patrons

Test Drive gives patrons the chance to learn about and compare different eReading devices using titles from your digital collection. Our guidelines and resources make it easy to reset and prepare your devices for the next patron.



“I would love to see Test Drive expand to all our branches. There are so many people interested in the technology but they may not have computers at home. Test Drive gives everyone an opportunity.”

“Test Drive integrates well with what we have already and sparks interest in our digital library.”
