Big announcement!

We have been working with OverDrive, Vaughan Public Library, and Richmond Hill Public Library to offer customers access to all three of our library’s OverDrive collections. We're happy to announce that the day is finally here and you now have access to all three Overdrive collections!

If you scroll to the bottom of the OverDrive home page, you will links to both VPL and RHPL's Overdrive sites. Once there, you can search Vaughan or Richmond Hill’s collections for items you wish to check out that were unavailable on our site and use your MPL card to check them out.

Items that they have borrowed will show up only in your cart at the library from which the item was borrowed. Once added to their bookshelf on your Overdrive/Libby app or e-reader, however, they will all be visible on the same book shelf.

There are some restrictions in place for this service: MPL customers cannot place holds on VPL or RHPL items. They can only check out items that are currently available. Also, MPL customers can only recommend purchases for Markham Public Library's Overdrive collection.

Happy reading!
