Burlington Public Library members can borrow up to 10 items and place 5 holds from each OverDrive partner library. The loan periods are set by the public library from which you are borrowing. You can place holds on items at our partner libraries. When fulfilling holds, each system will always give preference to home members first.

Accessing Partner Libraries on a Desktop Computer: 

To begin, go to https://burlingtonpl.overdrive.com/ and sign into your BPL OverDrive account. From here you can search, browse or borrow material from our library’s collection of material. If the item you are looking for is unavailable in our collection, you can then search the OverDrive collections of our partner libraries:

To access the OverDrive collections at Partner Libraries, at the top of Burlington’s OverDrive page you will see a tab for Partner Libraries:

  1. Click/tap on this link, and select the partner library you want to visit. These library catalogues have to be searched separately.
  2. Browse the OverDrive collection as you normally do, and when you are ready to borrow from a partner library, click/tap on BORROW. This will take you to the Welcome page.
  3. On the Welcome page, select your home library, Burlington Public Library, in the drop-down menu, and then type your 14-digit BPL card number and 4-digit PIN (by default, the last four digits of the telephone number we have in our records for you). The checkout procedure is the same for all partner libraries.

Accessing Partner Libraries on your Mobile Device:

Using the Libby app

  1. Click on the 3 horizontal lines at the bottom of your screen (between the house icon and book icon) > Add A Library.
  2. Add a library: Use the search box to find the library by name, city, or postal code.
  3. Tap the library to go to its collection and start browsing. To save the library, add a card.
  4. Select “I am visiting from another library.” Select Burlington Public Library.
  5. Enter your 14-digit library card number and 4-digit PIN (by default, the last four digits of the telephone number we have in our records for you).

Please note that with Libby, all checkouts and holds are listed together, regardless of which library they were borrowed from. There is an icon next to each title that lets you know which library a title came from or where the hold has been placed.
