If a patron returns 16 ebooks within a 7-day period, then additional checkouts will be temporarily blocked for several consecutive days. Please be advised that Greenville County Library System staff are not enabled to unblock an account with excessive checkouts.


Please note that you can use the ebook samples to preview titles before checking them out. The samples typically include the first chapter or two from each book. Previewing titles with samples would reduce the likelihood of reaching the excessive returns limit and having your account temporarily blocked by OverDrive. Once you click on a title in Overdrive, a Sample button should appear underneath the cover image. Just click that button to preview the book without checking it out.
