I have an older Kindle Fire. How come I can't get past the "Select Library" screen in the OverDrive app?

Older Kindle Fires have been using the "legacy" version of the OverDrive app, which now no longer functions properly.  As of late January 2017, the work-around for older Kindle Fires is to treat them like Kindle eReaders when it comes to OverDrive:  use a computer to check out eBooks from the OverDrive website, then select the Kindle format on your Loans list and enter your Amazon account information.  Have Amazon send the eBook to your "carousel" on your Fire so you can read it.  

If you wish to return early, sign in to your Amazon account, go to "Manage Your Content and Devices," find the eBook, and in the Actions menu, choose "Return this Book" and confirm.

Alternatively, you may also Read Online in a browser window in the event that you have already selected the ePub format and don't wish to return it and check it back out (or put it on hold again).
