  1. How do I renew downloadable audiobooks?
    by Jennie Shanks on Oct 16, 2014.
  2. You can renew downloadable eBooks and digital audiobooks checked out through the Maryland Digital eLibrary Consortium (OverDrive), but only if there are no holds on the title. If a title is able to be renewed, you will see a "Renew" link under the title when you look at your account on the Consortium's website. The "Renew" link appears three days before the title expires if the title is renewable.
