Streaming video–now available in OverDrive!

Streaming VideoOverDrive is not just for eBooks and audiobooks anymore. The Minuteman Library Network has added streaming video! Our initial collection of nearly 100 feature films, documentaries, and instructional videos is now available, with more to come soon.

A few details:

  • Video formats are marked by the Inline image 1 icon in the Overdrive catalog.
  • Videos are streaming, not downloadable, so you will need a constant WiFi/internet connection.
  • The lending period for Videos is 3 days. However: Videos automatically “return” themselves if you watch through the end of the credits, and STARZ videos automatically “return” themselves 48 hours after you start watching.
  • Videos count toward total OverDrive account checkouts (10) & holds (7).
  • Individual video title records are in the main catalog, but unlike ebooks and e-audiobooks, videos can ONLY be checked out in OverDrive (digital.minlib.net or the app).
