Important update on OverDrive for Mac



News from Rakuten Overdrive, the company that brings you the Digital Media Zone:


Due to upcoming macOS changes, and to simplify the user experience, OverDrive will soon end support for OverDrive for Mac. 

Effective September 4, 2019, OverDrive for Mac will no longer be available for download and Mac users will no longer see the option to download audiobook titles on the OverDrive website. Instead, Mac users can enjoy audiobooks using OverDrive Listen from your digital library website, or try Libby.

Any users with audiobooks already downloaded to OverDrive for Mac will retain access to their downloads for the remainder of the lending period, provided they have not yet updated to macOS 10.15 (Catalina).

Though we anticipate minimal user impact, OverDrive Help will be updated to assist with user support. If you need any help, please contact your local branch.
