No Library Card No Problem

The Overdrive Instant Digital Card (IDC) feature connects readers with KFPL's digital collection in just 30 seconds. Here's how it works!

  • Visit clevnet.overdrive.com
  • You will be presented with the option to get access to KFPL's digital collection using your mobile phone number. You will see a prompt on the log-in screen of your library’s OverDrive-powered website and in the OverDrive and Libby apps.

  • Provide your name and mobile number. OverDrive will use an address verification mapping software to assure your mobile phone number is associated with an address within the KFPL legal service area as defined by the State Library Of Ohio. If you do not live within the legal service area, you will be notified that you will not be permitted to proceed with  the registration process.
  • If you do live within KFPL's legal service area, you will be issued an Instant Digital Card which will give you access to your library's digital collection using your mobile number to sign in.
  • OverDrive will send a one-time code via SMS. This is to authenticate you as a user and ensures that only the person in possession of the mobile device can use that number to register.
  • Now, you may browse and borrow from the vast collection of millions of e-books, audiobooks, comics, graphic novels, children's books, teen books and more!
