No access to OverDrive?

On 30 October 2020, OverDrive made necessary security upgrades to protect the privacy of user data. These updates mean some devices with older operating systems lost access to the OverDrive app and OverDrive websites. 

If you see a message about losing access to Overdrive, your device is affected by this change.
