Are there other better reader experience options besides overdrive and 3m?I am very interested in Hoopla because the user interface and user experience, and ease is better than Overdrive and 3M. Would this be possible for OPL sooner rather than later. Right now, Bellevue Public Library does offer this choice.
Overdrive and 3M are too glitchy and I have really difficult time using it. I've talked to others who feel the same about their experiences using Overdrive and 3M for OPL services.

Thanks for asking! Omaha Public Library has already transitioned away from 3M ebooks. At this point, our Overdrive user base is fairly established, our Overdrive collection has been a significant enough investment, and our budgets are tight enough that I do not anticipate we'll be able to pivot to another digital services platform in the near future. That said, nothing changes without public input! The best channel for you to communicate your interest in Hoopla or similar services to our collection development and technology selection teams is probably our comment form or 402-444-4844.

Thanks for exploring new and exciting options for ebook, audio, and video content delivery, and thank you for using AskOPL!

  1. That answers the question I was going to ask. I checked out an eBook and the link to the instructions to view it still pointed to 3M's site. I was *very* confused when there were no Nebraska libraries in the dropdown menu on the 3M app. I am installing OverDrive now. :)
