When I go to the library site, it uses Over Drive, I get to the screen to choose the library and there is no login button to go forward. After rechecking, the login and 4 icons are practically whited out above the line to select library. When clicking on the whited out login, it takes me back to the same page. I got around this by typing the longgggggggg url to the page allowing me to enter card number and pw and that worked. The screen seems to refresh and the login and icon buttons show up just for a second then white out. Not sure if this is a kindle or overdrive problem.

Most of us use a computer to login to our local library's OverDrive sites.

After you find and checkout the book, it has a "Get Kindle" link which takes you to the Amazon site. From there, you can choose to send the book to your Kindle PaperWhite. It will then be sent wirelessly. Just turn on your device's wifi and "check and sync"

Although tedious, you can log in to your account on your Kindle. I just tried it on my K3. Go to the library network site. Then, before logging in, go to browser setting and disable Javascript. Everything worked normally after that. I think (don't know for sure) that doing this does away with the need for a second window to pop up. Kindle ereaders don't allow mutliple windows to be open. I was able to choose my library, type in my account # & password, view my acct. etc.

Just remember to enable javascript when you are done.

To insert a product link use the format: [[ASIN:ASIN product-title]] (What's this?)
