Overdrive Information

We hope you enjoy the Tuscaloosa City Schools digital library!


         If you are a student in the TCS, you may download audiobooks and eBooks from the library’s website, http://tcs.lib.overdrive.com, anytime, anywhere. To log into our digital library, you must have your student's state id number and their PIN. Your child's state id number can be found via iNow home portal>student information>demographic>origin/residency.  Your pin is your student's last name, capitalized. You can also visit the library to obtain this information.

         You can browse the collection, check out books (limit 4), read them in your browser OR download to PC, Mac®, and many mobile devices. To get started, browse to http://tcs.lib.overdrive.com.  A link to the digital library is included on the Library Home Page under Links. Titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period.


         Not every title is appropriate for every grade level.  In addition to age-appropriateness, family standards may vary widely.  To help avoid inappropriate choices, the collection can be searched by grade level.  If a parent does not want their child to download a particular type of book, then they should communicate that to their child. If a parent does not want their student to have access to the digital lending library, they should also communicate that to their school, and access will be blocked for that student.  In this way, all our system's students will have engaging, age-appropriate digital books available to them.


         With hundreds of titles to choose from, this collection is guaranteed to have something for everyone.  This service is FREE to all Tuscaloosa City School students.
