ALA Week! Library Love and OverDrive History Lesson

| E:129

Today's episode is presented by Libby, the new app from OverDrive that's the fastest and easiest way to enjoy your next great digital read.

Our episode today is a very special conversation as Jill and Adam sat down with two librarians who were integral in the creation of OverDrive. Both these women have decades of experience working as libraries and now they offer their services consulting IN OUR OFFICES. They have worked closely with OverDrive's CEO, Steve Potash, over the years and have helped make OverDrive the global company it is today. Hear how the company came to be while also celebrating the importance of libraries in our community on this American Library Association special episode.
