Note About OverDrive

After the Library's transition to our new circulation system, and catalog, we are now required to have patrons use their library card number and a four digit PIN number in order to access eBooks using OverDrive. If you already have a four digit PIN to access your library account from home to renew books, or access the computers at the library than you are ready to sign in to OverDrive. If you DO NOT have a PIN, you MUST come into the library in person in order to create a PIN. The Library can not accept PIN numbers by email or over the phone. This is a security measure put into place to make sure your digital loans are private and secure from potential prying eyes.
