OverDrive Software Update

We have had several patrons report that they are no longer able to transfer audiobooks from their computer to a device following the recent update to their OverDrive software. For patrons with Windows 8 and newer, the software is automatically being replaced with the “app” version of the software rather than the desktop version. The desktop version allows for transferring audiobooks to mp3 players, while the app version does not.

If you are experiencing this problem uninstall the OverDrive software. Then, visit http://app.overdrive.com. There will be a link to download the “OverDrive for Windows Desktop” software at the very bottom of the page. You should be able to resume transferring audiobooks to your device once the desktop version is installed.

Please let us know if you have any questions.


OneClick Digital Maintenance

The RB digital team has sent the following message about their OneClick Digital service:

We are working on major site updates and are currently experiencing some sporadic user login errors and inconsistencies on both the website and the app. We will notify you once maintenance is completed.
We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

Requesting items from other libraries – update

The state library delivery service has been reorganized and is now bringing requested items to your local library within a few days. Please make your requests and wait for them to arrive as before. Or for faster access, go directly to the owning library if you need the item quickly; your Shelton card is accepted in all CT public libraries. It is wise to call ahead to have the item pulled and put aside for you by the owning library. In most cases, you can then return the items at Plumb Memorial Library or the Huntington Branch.

The new statewide catalog is in the finishing stages and will allow you to search for items across the entire state.  We will keep you posted as to when it is officially up and running and ready for your requests.  If you have any questions, please see a librarian.  Thank you for your continued patience during this transition period!
