Back To OverDrive: “Tulsa Library to Resume Service Allowing Kindle Users eBooks Access”
The Tulsa City-County Library recently switched from OverDrive to Cloud Library for ebooks.
However, as Newson6.com reports, some library users were not happy with the change since they want to read library ebooks on Kindle devices.
So, in an effort to keep “all users happy” the library is switching back to OverDrive.
Of course, as the article points out, prior to the switch (from OverDrive) the library received complaints about the system being difficult to use.
The library released a statement saying, in part, “We are sorry to learn that some customers are unhappy with the decision to migrate our eBook collection from Overdrive to Cloud Library… As we want all of our customers to be happy, we will resume access to the Overdrive service within 30 days.”
The library said it will reassess in a year as it continues to provide the best experience for all customers.
