On Monday, May 29 (Memorial Day), Hennepin County libraries are closed.
OverDrive has made these changes to improve your experience using their services:
More about these changes from OverDrive:
OverDrive Read and OverDrive Listen are browser-based formats which are intended to be enjoyed via a device browser. In our continued efforts to simplify the user experience and reduce confusion around formats, we removed OverDrive Read and OverDrive Listen within the app to provide the best in-app experience, which is to download titles in EPUB or MP3 formats. Note: the only exception to this is if a title is only available in OverDrive Read or OverDrive Listen (for example, a read-along); those titles will continue to display in the app in their respective format.
For app users who were reading or listening to a title using OverDrive Read or OverDrive Listen, they can switch to their device’s Web browser and access the title from their Loans page at the digital library website. This will allow them to continue reading or listening from where they left off previously. Once their current checkouts expire and they return to the app, they’ll be able to borrow and enjoy titles again within the app.
