Having trouble?

Call the library.

Lafayette Public Library purchases downloadable eBook and audio books through from OverDrive as part of the Bayouland Library System, a consortium of local libraries that includes Acadia Parish Library, Iberia Parish Library, Lafayette Public Library, Opelousas-Eunice Public Library, St. Martin Parish Library, St. Mary Parish Library and Vermilion Parish Library. The service is FREE to use by anyone with a valid library card from one of these libraries.

A couple of frequently asked questions

  • Why don’t you have a particular title? Not everything published in print is available as an eBook product for purchase by a library. We add new titles every month. Please Note: If you are using the Overdrive mobile app to search our eBook catalog, you will only see eBooks that are compatible with your device. EBooks that require a PC to be downloaded will not show up while searching on your mobile device. You may request a title we don’t own here (but please be sure to search the Overdrive catalog first!).
  • Why don’t you have more copies? We purchase copies of eBooks the same way we do copies of print books. We look at the demand for the title. The more holds or requests placed on a title, the more copies are purchased.
