iOS 7 has been released, and many of you Apple users may have upgraded your device or will be upgrading in the near future.
If you're already using library eBooks on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, your Overdrive Media Console app will fail when trying to open a library eBook.
A fix is in the works, but in the meantime, the immediate remedy is re-authorize the app with your Adobe ID. If that doesn't work, the next step is to uninstall and re-install Overdrive Media Console app which will also require you to re-authorize with Adobe. IMPORTANT NOTE: A re-install will clear the bookshelf, history, and app settings from the app.
Your Bookshelf of checked-out eBooks will still be available from your eMedia Account so you can re-download any titles you still have checked out.
The Digital Bookmobile is traveling coast to coast and making a special stop at the Virginia Village Branch Library. Denver Public Library has thousands of eBooks and audio eBooks just waiting to be downloaded.

He had such a prominent presence online, on Twitter (my social medium of choice), Facebook and his blog. Here are some of the tweets that came across my feed yesterday afternoon. It's fascinating to see how widespread is the love for Roger Ebert.
Ebert's last tweet, linking to his last blog post for the Chicago Sun Times, posted 2 days before he passed away and 46 years after being named the film critic for the Chicago Sun-Times:
Our tried-and-true Statistical Abstract of the U.S. is now available online to Denver Public Library card holders. Use the table of contents to drill down by topic, or use the search box to search by keyword or table number.
In the eMedia catalog, after performing a search or choosing a subject, select “Additional titles” to search or browse the complete collection of eBooks and audio eBooks available for the library to purchase. You can recommend up to 30 titles per year for the library to purchase.
If a title is not listed in “Available titles” it is not available in digital format for libraries. When you recommend a title, you’ll be given the option to be placed on the hold list or to be notified that the title was purchased. At this time, we are unable to notify you if a recommendation is not purchased.
Use “Buy it Now” to purchase your own copy of an eBook or audio eBook you’d like to own, or don’t want to wait for. Any purchases made using a Buy it link from Denver Public Library’s eMedia site will support the library.
Borrowing eBooks and audio eBooks from the library just got a whole lot easier for users of the NOOK HD, NOOK HD+, NOOK Tablet and NOOK Color. Last week, Barnes & Noble added the OverDrive Media Console app to the NOOK Apps storefront. This NOOK app enables users to wirelessly borrow eBooks and MP3 audiobooks from the library.
Visit the NOOK Apps storefront to install the free OverDrive Media Console (OMC) app.
Sometimes you find answers in unexpected places. I found the most succinct description I've ever seen of how England, Great Britain and the United Kingdom relate to each other in a library newsletter about travel guidebooks:
London is the capital of England.
England is a country.
Britain is an area that consists of England and the country of Wales.
Great Britain is the name of the island that is home to the countries of England, Wales, and Scotland.
The United Kingdom (UK) is a country that is a union of the countries on the island of Great Britain, along with the country of Northern Ireland (which shares the island of Ireland with the Republic of Ireland.)
[The Republic of Ireland is] a separate country that is not part of the UK.
