Android Device Upgrade Needed for Libby and Kanopy Users with Older Devices

Android Devices 7.1.1 and Newer Are Not Affected 

OverDrive is discontinuing support for Android operating systems (OS) 7.1.0 and earlier. Starting the week of March 25, impacted Libby users will see a message to update their OS or switch to another supported device to continue using these app. This message will include steps for how to use a setup code to easily copy their library cards, loans, holds, and tags to another device.

After April 15, impacted Kanopy users will see a message indicating that their OS is no longer compatible, with a prompt to update, if possible.

OverDrive is making this change to uphold it’s standards of security and patron privacy and their commitment to delivering a quality experience to all libraries and their users. Please contact a Library staff member if you have further questions.
