What’s the difference between hoopla and OverDrive and Libby?

OverDrive is a service offered by Newburgh Free Library and the RCLS system that lets you borrow digital content (like eBooks and audiobooks) anytime, anywhere. Every OverDrive collection is slightly different because each library and library system picks the digital content they want for their users. All you need to get started with free digital content from your library is an internet connection and a library card.

If you are trying to use OverDrive on a smartphone or tablet, we recommend the new Libby App. If you are using Overdrive from your computer or an older device that doesn’t have Windows 10, look here.

For help with OverDrive, start at or call the library at 845-563-3618 set up an appointment for Tech Support.
You may also fill out this help form to get support from Overdrive directly.
For use by all RCLS  library card holders.

Go to or download the mobile app on Android or iOS devices to enjoy thousands of titles instantly. To register, enter your email address, a password; then your library card number and library card PIN number, which is typically the last 4 digits of your phone number. You can then start browsing and borrowing content, with no holds, wait lists or late fees!

You must have less than $10 in unpaid fines in order to borrow media, and will be allowed to borrow up to 10 titles per month.
