    The Maryland Overdrive site has clearly gotten more difficult to navigate rather than easier. I can’t even connect today, and tech support has yet to get back to me. 🙁

    I’m sorry to hear that, Julie. I hope they get the problem resolved. I suspect there are going to be bugs as this new update is rolled out.

    I enjoyed the insight from Mr Burleigh. Hopefully they get the kinks ironed out sooner rather than later.

    Really enjoy your podcasts.

    Thanks, Julie! If you continue to have troubles I would be glad to pass the info along to David Burleigh – I bet he would be interested and might forward it to someone within OverDrive to take a look at it.
