OVERDRIVE update:  Kindle users are currently experiencing issues and we have learned that Amazon has determined it is an issue between Amazon and Overdrive.  They are working at correcting it!   I wish I had a magic wand to help them through this process, but alas, patience must be a virtue in this case.    THANK YOU for your patience and understanding!

The staff wishes all of you a safe and happy holiday!    ~~~ Miss Gayle
