OverDrive Video is Being Replaced by Kanopy, an Award-Winning Video Service!

OverDrive is one of the library providers for your favorite eBooks, Audiobooks and eMagazines. The Santa Clara County Library District is always working to keep you informed on changes coming to our online resources.

 You may recall that OverDrive is currently making changes such as the removal of their OverDrive App for the Libby App which provides the same great services. In addition to these changes, OverDrive will be winding down OverDrive Video in order to move more users towards Kanopy, which allows you to stream movies including the Criterion Collection, The Great Courses series, Enjoy 15 videos per month (resets on the 1st of each month), plus unlimited streaming of The Great Courses. Kanopy also offers a streaming video service just for Kids with unlimited streaming. 

All OverDrive video titles will be removed from our collection on September 1st, 2022.

  • Users with active checkouts on OverDrive video titles on September 1 will maintain access through the end of their lending period.
  • After September 1, users trying to access OverDrive video through direct title links or a link to a Streaming Video Room  will see a message explaining that video titles are no longer available from your OverDrive website or the OverDrive app.This will be replaced with a message to steer users to Kanopy. 

The Santa Clara County Library District is here to help during this transition. If you have any questions or need assistance, you can always Ask a Librarian or visit our Online Library 24/7 Help section!
