Q

Why don't I see a Kindle version of a Maryland Digital eLibrary e-book? I thought all e-book titles in that collection are available for Kindle?

Answer

When a title has just been added to the Maryland Digital eLibrary, there is sometimes (but not always) a lag of a day or two before OverDrive obtains the link to the title on Amazon's website.   When the link is received, the Kindle versions will appear in the Maryland Digital eLibrary collection.

There is another related problem occasionally:

If you check out a Kindle e-book and hit the "Get for Kindle" button but receive an error page on the Amazon website that says the requested page does not exist, please fill out the support form.  OverDrive and Amazon will repair the broken link within a day or two.

And finally, if you are using a Kindle Fire and are not seeing Kindle versions of e-books, please be sure to use the Maryland Digital eLibrary in desktop view on the Fire's browser.

    Live Chat

    Using this service you may be chatting with MCPL librarians or librarians at other libraries. All librarians will assist you and, if needed, refer your question, to MCPL librarians.

    For more than a decade, Montgomery County Public Libraries has offered a live, digital chat reference service. Developed by MCPL staff in 2002, with just a chat box on the main webpage, we quickly expanded to include chat reference options that could be accessed across the website and even in the catalog. This year the Maryland AskUsNow! cooperative, of which MCPL is a member, began providing the same type of chat reference service to all its participating members. We are pleased to announce that, by joining forces with the Maryland AskUsNow! cooperative - a network of librarians worldwide - MCPL will continue to support our community with the same quality chat reference service that we have offered for the last 11 years, but it will now be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We look forward to continuing our reference chats!
