  • eSpotlight - Hey OverDrive Users! Have you tried Libby?Libby logo with ponytail

    Libby is still the same OverDrive you love, just friendlier! If you keep an eye on this blog, you might remember that we introduced OverDrive's new app (still in the beta testing stage) in January. Libby is available in addition to the regular app with which you may be familiar. Now that the app has been available for a while, I'd like to point out some of the features that I think are really cool.

  • Stop and Smell the Roses at Municipal Rose Garden in San JoseSign of Municipal Rose Garden

    A year ago, I had the opportunity to go to San Jose Municipal Rose Garden as part of a drawing Meetup group. The only part of the title of the group that I can remember is Doodlepalooza. The group met on a weekday around lunchtime. I only had enough time to start a pencil sketch of the fountain before I had to go to work in the afternoon. I told myself that I would come back one day and finish it by adding color. I finally got an opportunity to come back … a year later.
