I found an Overdrive eBook or eAudiobook on the PLS Overdrive website but when I try to download it using the mobile app, I can't find it. Why not?

Currently, the SMCL mobile app only allows checkout and download of available Overdrive eBooks and eAudiobooks. It does not yet allow users to place holds on Overdrive eBooks and eAudiobooks that are currently checked out to another user, although that feature is coming soon. To place a hold on an Overdrive eBook or eAudiobook please go to pls.lib.overdrive.com.
