How do I return a book I checked out on ebooks?

How to return an e-book

Returning e-books varies depending on your device. For the most part, you'll see either a small triangle next to the cover, an "options" button, or when you hold your finger on the cover, a list of options will appear. One of these will be "return and delete." This will return the book to the OverDrive pool and take it off your device.
Just a reminder that unless you are at your 10 book limit and want to check out more, you don't HAVE to manually return e-books. They automatically are returned on their due date. No late fees possible!
If you have a particular question about your device, call us at the Reference Desk at 322-3930. Hope this helps!
