Pittsylvania County Library



On January 31, 2020, the Pittsylvania County Public Library will discontinue our participation in the Piedmont Library Overdrive Consortium. Due to the increasing costs of sustaining multiple digital platforms, we made made the difficult choice to end our participation in Overdrive in order to better support our patrons with Hoopla. Hoopla offers a larger choice of titles (almost 700,000 ebook, eaudiobook, and video titles, compared to 7,000 Overdrive titles), no holds or waiting (the average wait for a book on Overdrive was 104 days), and an easier-to-use interface.

We know there will be disappointed Overdrive users, and we sincerely apologize. If you have any questions about accessing Hoopla Digital, please talk to any library staff member.

A free service that lets you borrow eBooks, audiobooks, and more from our digital collections.  Never pay an overdue fine again!
