For Library2Go ebook users - no new activations 8/27 starting at 10:30 pm

Do you use Library2Go ebooks in the EPUB or PDF formats? The message below is for you.

From 10:30 pm on Monday, August 27th to approximately 4:30 am the next morning, Adobe is taking their Activation Service offline for maintenance. This means you will be unable to authorize a device with a new Adobe ID during this time. 

Who does this affect? The only people affected by this downtime will be people activating their device with an Adobe ID for the first time. That means, if you are creating a new Adobe account and want to authorize your device with it during the maintenance window, you will be unable to do so. This includes authorizing ereaders like the NOOK, or authorizing the OverDrive Media Console app on your smartphone or tablet.

Who will not be affected? Anyone just downloading or reading ebooks should not be affected by this downtime. Also, if you have previously activated a device with an Adobe ID, you should still be able to activate additional devices during this time. If you read Kindle ebooks, this downtime does not affect you at all.

If you have more questions about Library2Go, please contact your local WCCLS library.

Updates to the look of the Library2Go help pages

The Library2Go help pages on the WCCLS website are some of our most-visited. This is a testament to the popularity of the Library2Go download service. It's also a result of the fact that downloading isn't always completely intuitive for some of our users new to the process, and especially to those people new to mobile devices and e-readers in general.
