Downloading MP3 Audiobooks on a Mac

Mac users might have noticed that the "Download MP3 Audiobook" button is missing on their audiobook loans. 

The vendor has discontinued support for the OverDrive Media Console for Macs and the OMC program will not be compatible with the new Mac operating system Catalina, which is expected to be released in October 2019.

In advance of Catalina's release, the vendor has removed the "Download MP3 Audiobook" button when a MacBook is detected. However, it is possible to temporarily bypass this lack of button on Safari -- until Catalina is installed on the device.

Here is how to trick the website into thinking that you are using a Windows computer:

From the menu, click on "Develop >> User Agent >> Firefox -- Windows." The page will reload and the MP3 audiobook button will appear.


Again, this trick will only work until you update your computer to Catalina. It is also suspected that the vendor will remove the ability to download MP3 audiobooks on Windows computers at some point, pushing all audiobook usage to Libby App-compatible devices.
