December 29: Suggestion regarding bar codes and pins

Request:  "Hello, please fix the purchase suggestion form so that either the pin number populates the pin number bar, or even better, have the library card number populate the bar code bar and leave the pin unfilled so that the user has to put it in.  Thanks for providing this suggestion option!"

Response:  Our current system does not allow bar codes and pins to automatically populate, but if you download the library app, you are given the option to store your bar code and pin.  Please contact the Reference Desk if you have any questions.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR EBOOK READERS




 
It has come to our attention that the latest version (version 4) of Adobe Digital Editions ereader software “gathers highly specific data about individual users’ reading behavior and transmits it, unencrypted and with all identifying information included as well as other data culled from the user’s machine, back to Adobe.”* This affects readers of ePub ebooks who access these books via a computer using Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) software.  It is our understanding that readers who access their ebooks on their mobile devices using the Overdrive App are not affected.
