How It Works
Philanthropy Southeast has partnered with OverDrive to offer our library – you may already be familiar with OverDrive, which works with hundreds of public library systems across the country to offer e-books and audiobooks to patrons free of charge.
Just like these public libraries, the Philanthropy Southeast Lending Library is accessible from Libby, a user-friendly app for iOS and Android devices that allows for borrowing and reading all in one place (users of older devices can also use the OverDrive app).
View our guide to using Libby with the Philanthropy Southeast Lending Library.
To borrow items, you’ll need to log in to OverDrive with your Philanthropy Southeast username and your unique Philanthropy Southeast OverDrive password – if you were in our member database as of March 2020, you should have received this password via email.
If you do not know your Philanthropy Southeast username or OverDrive password, contact Stephen Sherman at firstname.lastname@example.org or (404) 524-0911 for assistance with your login.
Once you borrow a title, you’ll be able to enjoy it on your computer, tablet, smartphone or eReader. Most e-books are available to read in a variety of formats, including Kindle, Adobe EPUB, Adobe PDF, and OverDrive Read. Audiobooks can be downloaded in MP3 format or played directly from your browser.
