More Troubleshooting

  • EPUBs and PDFs can be returned early through Adobe Digital Editions on a computer, or through OverDrive Media Console on a portable device. WMA and MP3s cannot be returned early.
  • Be careful to choose the right format for your computer or device – the Kindle link is easy to hit instead of EPUB, for instance.
  • Not all publishers offer their catalogs for libraries or in all formats– we are always happy to see if any particular title is available to libraries in the desired format. Timing is critical: a patron has 72 hours from when the notification email was sent (e.g., if it was in the middle of the night), and 30 minutes to move the title from their cart to checkout. We urge people to take care of both steps promptly so they won’t lose their holds.
