What is GLC? Get a Library Card!

“Get a Library Card” is an innovative service that is the fastest and easiest way to get a library card for checking out OverDrive ebooks and eaudiobooks.

Readers can sign up for a library card and begin borrowing digital content from the Overdrive library in under 30 seconds — all from their mobile device.

This process is both quick and safe.

OverDrive uses a third-party verification service to connect the user’s name and phone number to a physical address and, if that address is within the participating library’s service area, they can begin borrowing titles from the digital collection instantly. The new patron’s cell phone number doubles as their card number and they have full access to their library’s OverDrive-powered digital collection.

NOTE: The library is provided with each validated user’s contact information, including the mobile number, name, and address that are used to verify your GLC eligibility.
