Thanks for adding a place for library patrons to easily review books they're read and read reviews posted by other patrons. Hope this web site is faster than the other.

Hi there. We're glad you're excited to review books! We're working closely with our hosting provider to make the site as fast as possible, but let us know if you find it slow after the launch.

This is not a very user-friendly program and there is no way to learn as you go. I can't find how to get to my main page, how to get my new magazines listed with my others (the new ones stay on a separate page), and it takes forever to download magazines. It also doesn't tell you when the are due back (I since found out that they do not have to be returned and that they will "dissolve" in time. Zinio is not easy to use and not easy to learn.

Freegal is awesome. It is so nice to have free downloadable music.

Not user friendly as the old program that was in place and understood, this has no way to know where you are going and how to get there. Merely putting out a link to guide you thru is not productive as most of us just want to read a book not take lessons in program management.

Hi there. We're sorry you are finding the new OverDrive site difficult to use. Because they are a vendor (we don't own the product) we didn't have control over the upgrade. We hope that over time you will become more comfortable with it and it's new features. Meanwhile, feel free to contact OverDrive http://help.overdrive.com/ with any questions, comments, or concerns.

Thank you, Wyoming, for providing your patrons some solid & uselful information!
And what about MicroSoft no longer supporting OneClickDigital, what are the ramifications for the many of us (including many local businesses) still using Windows 7 OS? Would expect, at the least, for the library to have considered coding that did not require specific browsers for functionality - there's a certain impropriety in a public institution telling the taxpayers that support it that they need to use a particular Privately Owned Product to access materials.

That I should have to spend hours researching and figuring this myself makes the library just an unhappy waste of time.

Hello, sorry to hear that you are experiencing issues. First thing, in your comment you noted that the issues you were experiencing were with a Wyoming library district. This website is for the Pikes Peak Library District in Colorado Springs, CO. I think that we will still be able to assist you with your issue though.
It looks like you can use OneClick Digital on a Windows computer with an operating system Visa or higher. Here is a link for the OneClick Digital help page were I found this information ---http://ppldco.oneclickdigital.com/#help. Also, you can contact OneClick Digital directly by emailing then at the address --- support@oneclickdigital.com.

Is there a way to renew a kindle download? Done a couple downloads, but haven't found a way to renew. If not, do you just have to wait till they expire then have to reorder?

There are no renewals. You can request again a few days before it expires, but if it's on hold you'll have to put yourself back on the list.

Ive noticed a lot of the new books on overdrive dont have kindle versions. Is there an issue obtaining Kindle versions of releases now?

OverDrive reported a slight delay over the holidays in getting the Kindle versions of new titles delivered to them by Amazon, but they are catching up. You should see the Kindle format added to many of the new titles soon.

If your online privileges have expired, your Pikes Peak Library District account needs to be updated. This occurs every three years and requires that you go to any PPLD library, with a picture ID, to verify your contact information, or to make any changes if your contact information has changed in the last three years.

I really like libby, BUT can't find a way to access my overdrive / eLibrary wishlist using it. I wish there was a way to save a list of books on libby! :)

with new mac os overdrive 32 bit will not work, how do i download e=book to kindle

Don't forget the free Libby app! You can listen to books you download directly from the library on it using your phone.

Hi, I have had an overdrive/ Libby account for a long time now and my loan limits have been 30. I just noticed that I am only allowed to checkout 10 now.
I also used to be able to check out books for 21 days and now I can only check out books for 14 days at this time.

Is my account on suspension or malfunctioning? Are these changed limits (30 to 10 and 21 days to 14 days ) for everyone in the PPLD or just my account?

Thank you for any help in regards to this issue.

Hi there. As more patrons will use PPLD digital resources online, cardholders can have 10 checkouts for a total of 14 days each; the holds limit remains at a total of 30. PPLD will continue to add copies of digital materials to our collection as our budget allows. Please visit our COVID-19 page for more information.

Is there anyway to renew your library card with the libraries closed. Of course it has expired now that I need it!!

Getting really frustrated. You have a number of books listed as available as ebooks, but the best I can get to is a preview or a link to pay for it. Then, I have to go to sites/apps for a dozen different ebook companies and they aren’t there either.
