Overdrive has announced that they will sunset the legacy Overdrive app in favor of the newer Libby app:

"We’re excited to take the next step with Libby and make it the primary way to enjoy your digital library. Our goal is to simplify how you talk about your OverDrive service and promote the best reading experience for everyone, Libby.

To achieve this goal, we are winding down the legacy OverDrive app. As a first step, we will remove the OverDrive app from the Apple App Store, Google Play, and Microsoft Store in February 2022.

By the end of 2022, we plan to have most OverDrive app users migrated to Libby."

If you already have the Overdrive app installed you will still be able to use it, but the support for it will diminish.  You can switch to the Libby app without losing your current checkouts or holds.  The Libby app features access to streaming content from Indieflix, Qello Concerts, The Great Courses, and Universal Class which is not available in the Overdrive app.  Find out how to get started with Libby and watched a brief intro video at Get Started with Libby    If you use the PC/Mac version learn more at  about how to get started.
