OverDrive will be completing maintenance on their site starting Saturday, September 29 at 10:30 PM and ending Sunday, September 30 at 12:30 AM (CST). During this scheduled maintenance window, there may be interruptions to the service. We apologize for any inconvenience.

From OverDrive:

Adobe has scheduled a maintenance window to begin at 1:30am EDT on Tuesday, August 28. The maintenance will take the Adobe Activation Service offline and is expected to take approximately six hours.


The library will be performing scheduled maintenance on Friday, August 10. As a result, the catalog, databases and eMedia my be unavailable from 5:00-7:00 p.m. We apologize for any inconvenience. 

When completing a search, the ability to limit results to available copies is not functioning correctly. OverDrive is aware of the situation and is working to correct it. Unfortunately, they do not have an estimated time of completion. Thanks for your patience!
