We're sorry to hear that your checkout didn't go through. Let's see what might be causing the trouble:
Have you signed into your OverDrive account before?
If not, head on over and sign in by clicking the Sign in link in the top right. This will open the connection between the Library's website and OverDrive. Or if you have the OverDrive app installed on your mobile device, sign into that.
Do you owe over $50.00 in fines and late fees?
Check your account balance. If you need to pay your balance down to under $50, you may pay online by selecting that button under the amount you owe.
When was the last time you renewed your library card?
Your library card needs to be renewed every three years. The expiration date is written on your library card. Just stop by the Welcome Desk to renew your card.
If you live in another town, e-Books and other digital content are limited to Darien residents. Check your home library to see if they have OverDrive. Many Connecticut libraries do!
