Make the font size display larger or smaller in the Overdrive app to suit your preference! You can adjust the font size in the OverDrive app for Windows 8/10, iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch), and Android or Chromebook. The Overdrive app also offers a special font for DYSLEXIC READERS!
Are you dyslexic, or do you have a dyslexic child? The most recent version of the OverDrive app includes the option to select a dyslexic font when reading eBooks! Standard typefaces are often difficult to read for people with dyslexia as the letters are hard to differentiate and words tend to jumble together. Dyslexic fonts provide greater contrast in letters which solves this problem. The dyslexic font option is available in the OverDrive app (v3.3 or higher) for Android, Chromebook, iOS, and Windows 8. CLICK OR TAP HERE to find out how to enable dyslexic font in the Overdrive app.
You can also view the eLibrary NJ website with a Dyslexic font display. Just go to SETTINGS and choose your preferred display options.

If you have used up all your allotted loans for the week, you will be unable to download additional books, but you will be able to queue up for the following week to do so.
Unused book loans roll over to the following week. Every 4 weeks, unused book loans expire. An individual loan is for 2 weeks and may be renewed for an additional 2 weeks. CLICK OR TAP HERE for Freading FAQ.
