When I try to sign in to the OverDrive catalog, I see the error message "(1) Invalid patron." What does this mean?

This means that you have entered a different library card number or last name from what we have on record. When signing in, enter all the digits of your library card number.

  • If you have an ECARD number, enter that word along with the trailing digits with no spaces between them. For example: ecard1234567
  • If your card number has a lowercase letter "c" at the end, do not include it when you enter your card number.
Your password/pin is your full last name. If your last name is hyphenated or has a space or apostrophe, you will have to enter that hyphen, space, or apostrophe. If that doesn't work, try your last name without the hyphen, space, or apostrophe and if that still doesn't work, please contact us.
