2 Million OverDrive Loans!


OverDrive, our main eBook and eAudiobook digital platform, has just recorded it’s 2 millionth loan!

ERL subscribed to the platform in June 2011 – equating to an average of 630 ebooks borrowed per day ever since!

The first title borrowed on OverDrive was the “Love and Punishment” eBook written by the Australian author Wendy Harmer. The 2 millionth loan was also written by an Australian – Graeme Simsion’s “The Best of Adam Sharp” and was borrowed by one of our Ferntree Gully members on the 7th January 2020.

This sounds kind of impressive until you find out that Toronto Public Library lent out over 6 million items through OverDrive in the last year….
