Renewals now available for OverDrive titles!

Pulp-less Fiction: Digital Downloads

This blog is about new paperless reading materials like downloadable audio books, ebooks, and online magazines, made available to you through the Appleton Public Library. I plan to provide helpful tips on using these new products, along with reviews of audio books, music on cd, and movies on DVD and Blu-ray.  The library is changing as rapidly as your access to media and the Internet. We want to keep on top of the trends and bring you information and entertainment in a way that fits your life today.   -Beth

Don’t have time to finish your downloaded title before it’s due?  Now you can renew a title as long as no one is waiting for it.

On your bookshelf, under the Download and Read buttons, it shows when your title is due.  With 3 days left, the Renew function (with a circled arrow) appears.  If the arrow is green, you are able to renew the item as soon as your checkout expires.  If it is grayed out, you can get back on the holds list.


Click “Renew” to start the process.  If you chose to have your email saved, it will appear in the boxes, or you can enter an email.

Once you complete the process, a check mark appears next to the word “Renew” to show the book has been renewed.

When your book’s original checkout expires, you will receive an email notification that the title is available to retrieve from your Holds page.

Click the link in the email.  Or follow these instructions.  You will only be allowed to renew this title one time.

For those titles that have a holds list, the Renew feature allows you to add a hold as soon as your checkout time expires.  You can also track titles you’ve renewed from your Holds page. 


Enjoy this new feature from Wisconsin's Digital Library!
