Yes, customers have a few options to find titles based on age or maturity level.

You can browse among featured collections (Teen Nonfiction, Children fiction, etc) on OverDrive's menu. Users can also click Subjects and select titles in different categories within different age groups.  An advanced search allows users to narrow down selections to format, audience, interest level, lexile level, language and availability.

In addition, the library has a children's version of OverDrive which can be accessed by clicking Kids on the main Overdrive page.

Lastly, if you'd like to exclude content from appearing altogether based on maturity level, there's now a setting that will control which titles are displayed and searched when logged into your account. This will allow adult users, for example, to exclude titles for younger readers and younger readers to exclude general adult titles from their experience.  To change your preferences click Settings which can be found in the drop down menu under My Account.
