On October 30, 2020, OverDrive is making necessary security upgrades to protect the privacy of user data. These updates mean certain devices with older operating systems will lose access to the OverDrive app and OverDrive websites.

If you see a message about losing access to the digital library after October 30, 2020, your device is affected by this change.
