Coronado Public Library Ebook Service Upgrade Coming on August 20, 2013

Patrons of the Coronado Public Library who use Android and Apple devices to “check out” books electronically will see a new version of OverDrive Media Console on August 20, 2013. This next generation release will include:

*A redesigned user interface with an all-new look, streamlined navigation and a one-stop reorganized menu. App functions are just a swipe and tap away.

*Users will be able to sync bookmarks and reading progress across multiple devices using a free, opt-in registration service called OverDrive One.

*Variable speed playback for iOS will allow users to adjust the speed at which the book is read

*First run tutorial screens. The app now prompts first time users to add libraries and get books.

On August 20, 2103, users will be prompted to install the new version on their devices. To get a preview of the app click here. Library card holders can continue to borrow and enjoy digital media anytime by visiting serra.lib.overdrive.com.
