To return a Kindle eBook before its due date:

  1. Go to
  2. Hover over Account & Lists and choose Manage Your Content and Devices. Log in if prompted.

  3. Click the three dots  button to the left of the title you want to return. 
  4. Click Return this book then click Yes to confirm.

  5. The book will return to the Library. If the title remains in your content list and you want to remove it, click three dots  again and choose Delete. 


If you don't see the book you want to return, confirm that you are signed into your account and not someone else's by looking above Your Account, which should say, Hello, (Your Name). If it's not you, hover over Your Account and choose the last option on the menu, Not XX? Sign out. Then sign in as yourself and follow the above steps. 

All titles auto-return at the end of the lending period. Learn how to change the lending period for future checkouts.

OverDrive’s Front Line Support can also early-return a title. To pursue this option fill out the OverDrive Tech Support form online.
