You may have noticed on our Overdrive page that our digital content is moving to a new location. Don’t panic! The Library District will still be using Overdrive as our primary source for digital content, but most of the Public Libraries in Indiana have chosen to merge into a single digital consortium. The transfer of content to the new Indiana Digital Library is underway at this time. For the next few days, you can still download content from the Indiana Digital Download Center as before. Eventually, that web page will be discontinued and you’ll need to go to: https://idl.overdrive.com/ We’ll be updating the information on the Library webpage, so that new link will be active soon.
The first time you use the new site on each of your computers or devices, or on the Libby app, you’ll probably need your library card handy to enter the your number, along with your PIN.
Why the merger? Pooling the resources of so many libraries will allow us to make better use of your money. Also, the Indiana State Library has agreed to cover the Overdrive platform fee – that’s your taxpayer money at work again! The new Indiana Digital Library will also have a team of librarians actively managing the collection and making purchases of high-interest titles to keep wait times shorter.
If you have any questions or problems during the transition, just give us a call at 812-926-0646.
