New Overdrive website

Launch of the NEW OverDrive website is schedule for Jan 11, 2016

Setting the lending period is no longer found in the Setting on My Account.  Instead you can change the lending period for an ebook or audio book at the time of borrowing.   This ability is only found in the description page of a title.  Click on the downward arrow in the borrow button to select the lending period you desire.  OverDrive will remember the lending period selected so this only needs to be done the first time you check out a title in the new website.
