New version of OverDrive app available

It’s been announced that there is a new version of the OverDrive app for Android, iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch), and Windows 8! This update features the long-awaited elimination of the Adobe Authorization step from the app installation process – one of the most frequently requested enhancements. We expect this change will significantly reduce the need for outside support and will provide excellent benefit to users like syncing reading progress across multiple devices.

First-time users will now be prompted to create an OverDrive account. There is no change for existing users who already have an Adobe ID or OverDrive account associated with their OverDrive app, even after they update to the newest version.

A quick reminder: One Book South Dakota is right around the corner…


One Book South Dakota
Dakota: A Spiritual Geography by Kathleen Norris
Book Discussion: Wednesday, September 24th
7 pm, Kozak Community Room
Discussion facilitated by Molly Rozum,
Associate Professor of History, USD

The One Book South Dakota is sponsored by the South Dakota Humanities Council.
We can read a book alone, but until we discuss it, the process doesn’t seem complete. Often what one person says about a book enhances our understanding and shapes our perceptions of the book’s themes and meaning. The One Book South Dakota program exists to encourage this exchange through reading one book as a community.
