Do you wish you had longer to read or listen to that ebook? OverDrive offers three different lending periods for materials. Log in to your account, then go to My Account, then choose Settings. There you can choose the default lending period that works best for you. If you finish early, simply return the book in “Loans”. Items already checked out will not change, but future loans will default to these settings. Change them anytime.
