*OverDrive has removed the legacy OverDrive app from app stores to focus on Libby as the primary way to enjoy its digital library and will discontinue the app in early 2023. Although you may continue to access OverDrive via YCL's website, we encourage you to upgrade to Libby today to avoid disruptions.
**OverDrive Maintenance Notice: From May 3 through July 28, OverDrive will perform server upgrades to enhance performance and security each Tuesday and Thursday between 6–8 a.m. EST. During these times, you will still be able to sign in to your digital collection and browse or read titles, but you may encounter errors when attempting to borrow, place a hold, or return titles.
