OverDrive and eReaders

If you received an eReader (Kindle, Nook, iPad, etc.) for the holidays, please be patient today with our free OverDrive downloadable eBooks this morning. This message from our network:
“This message is to inform you that we are experiencing extremely high traffic at some of our hosted library websites which may result in reduced performance. OverDrive network engineers will be servicing and upgrading equipment this morning (between 9 am EST and 9:30 am EST) that will cause a brief interruption of service. This interruption is anticipated to last 1 to 3 minutes.”
