Comments

my comment is that i would like to help out with the library

I live in Loveland I don't come to Colorado Springs very often is there a way to get the library card maild to me

Yes, you can get an out-of-district library card and you will have access to some PPLD services, including CyberShelf. You can apply for a temporary card online. Before your temporary card expires in 10 days, please visit any Pikes Peak Library District location and show a picture ID and proof of current address. You will then receive your permanent library card. If you set up an Overdrive account with your temporary card, to access ebooks online, be sure to let us know when you come in to get your permanent card. Happy reading!

Every time I try to download a new eBook that has finally become available, it defaults to Overdrive. I want all my eBooks in Kindle format. How can I do this?

Sorry to hear that you are experiencing issues downloading your ebooks. Ebooks in the OverDrive catalog are available in several format; OverDrive Read and Kindle being two of those available formats. Not all titles in OverDrive will be available in all of the available formats. The titles that you have checkout through OverDrive may not be available in the Kindle format. How you can specifically find titles that are only in the Kindle format is by doing an Advanced Search and selecting the Kindle format.
If you have any other questions please call or visit the CyberDesk at Library21c, 719-884-9800 x6300
