Important Notice for Apple iOS Library eBook Users

An important notice for Apple iOS users of OverDrive Washington Anytime Library eBooks and eAudiobooks:

There is an issue for users who have upgraded to iOS 7 (compatible with newer iPhones, iPods, iPads, only). The OverDrive Media Console app will fail when trying to open a DRM (Digital Rights Management)-protected eBook. New or first time users of OverDrive Media Console (OMC) are unaffected by this issue.

OverDrive is working to resolve the issue. In the meantime, for users of the existing OMC app who upgrade to iOS 7, here are the recommended remedies:


IMPORTANT NOTE: A re-install will clear your bookshelf, history, and app settings. You will need to re-download any eBooks or eAudiobooks in progress if you reinstall OMC.

If you use eAudiobooks, you won't notice any issues unless you attempt to re-download parts of an audiobook you already downloaded to OMC before upgrading to iOS 7. You will receive an error message informing you to download the title again.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
