Audiobooks, Music, & More to have new website!

The State Library had been in contract negotiations with Overdrive, and they failed. In a nutshell, Overdrive wanted to impose a 700% administrative fee increase over the next 3 years and wanted to stipulate that all of the audiobooks and ebooks purchased from them over the last 6 years were “leased” not “owned” as per the original contract. Either was kind of difficult to take, but both demands together were unreasonable. So we are moving! For the full story and to learn about the new service visit the Kansas EZ Library: Your access for the new audiobooks area will be ready on November 21, so you’ll have time to practice before the Overdrive contract ends. The ebooks company is a little further behind. An exact date for that will be posted on the Kansas EZ Library as it becomes available.
